Last items in stock

Gary McKay, the author of this Vietnam War book, interviewed the men of Delta Company from the Australian 4th Battalion that served in Vietnam.

In 1993, he travelled back to Vietnam with some of the veterans of 4th Battalion. There he met with former Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers, who shared their private views on one of the most tragic episodes in Australian military history.

Delta Four exposes the inner workings of an Australian rifle company – how its soldiers trained for war, and how they operated and fought in the war zone. It examines the basic qualities of infantry soldiering, of leadership and battlecraft. Above all else, it gives the soldier’s viewpoints of those aspects of war-fighting not found in training pamphlets.

The reader will share in the inner most feelings and thoughts of the men whose job was to seek out, close with and kill the elusive Viet Cong and North Vietnamese enemy. They will share in the triumphs and tragedies, the tears and belly laughs of men who spent every day wondering if this would be their last.
