GOING BACK

Australians Return to Vietnam

Author: Gary Mckay

Unreviewed


Book Title: Going BackWell known author, historian and Vietnam veteran Gary McKay has recently published another book about the Vietnam War. "Going Back" is a detailed and highly personal collection of the experiences of Australian Viet Nam War veterans as they journey back to the country where they once fought. The book is largely based on a group of nine 5RAR first tour veterans who returned in October 2005, most with their partners. Gary McKay accompanied the group on their pilgrimage and interviewed them before, during and after the trip. It is a very easy read and is accompanied by many photos of old familiar sites and 5RAR personalities known to many. It is highly recommended reading for those who may be contemplating a return trip.

"Going Back" is published by Allen & Unwin with a RRP of $24.95. ISBN 978 1 74114 634 9.
