They Should Know they were THERE and in Command !

As the Title states this was written by the various Commanders who took part in the Battle. This makes this book quite different to others on the Battle as it puts together a very detailed diary of events which happened on that day.The most notable Australian Battle of the Vietnam War 'Long Tan". It was the late afternoon of August 18th 1966. For three hours , in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of the Long Tan rubber plantation in Phuoc Tuy Province, the dispersed D company ( 6th Battalion ) of 100 Australians had been fighting for their lives , holding off a force of some 2500 Vietnamese. Gaurantee this book is huge on Australian Vietnam detail. We thank Major Harry Smith and D Company for their heroic stand and remember our 17 brave boys who lost their lives -
