This book 'In the Anzac Spirit' vividly describes the conditions under which 4RAR/NZ fought, and demonstrated the co-operation received from the other forces involved in the war. Few books have so successfully described the constant routine of patrolling, ambushing and endless contacts undertaken by the ordinary infantryman.

Written by Brian Avery, who served with 1RAR and 3RAR in Malaya, 4RAR in Borneo, and commanded 4RAR/NZ Mortar Platoon in Vietnam. The constant themes of the book are the military skills, endurance, and gallantry of the Diggers and Kiwi soldiers as they tracked down and fought a determined Viet Cong foe in Phuoc Tuy province.

Contains many photos and maps illustrating the campaign, plus a full Nominal Roll of those men who served with 4RAR during the Battalion's first tour in Vietnam. The excellent and realistic descriptions in this book on operations in South Vietnam make compelling reading. The author takes the reader into every aspect of each operation so that the reader feels the reality of war.
