About this title:

Synopsis: From the author of "Battle of Long Tan", this new work is an account of the largest and only unit level battle involving Australian soldiers in the Vietnam War. For 26 days in May and June 1968, units of the 1st Australian Task Force fought a series of actions around Fire Support Bases Coral and Balmoral. They moved into an area dominated by the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong and were forced to adopt a very different style of warfare. From a war of patrolling and ambushing, the Australian forces were confronted with an enemy who actively came looking for a fight. In this account the author includes individual stories of bravery, compassion and humour: the officer who stood in full view of the enemy to direct machine-gun fire and the typical "Digger" who amidst the chaos listened to the race results on Radio Australia. Lex McAulay has spent 22 years in the army, including three tours of Vietnam.

Book Description Hutchinson, Australia, 1988. Hardcover in Dustjacket. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Australian, New Zealand and United States forces were involved in a series of actions between May and June 1968 at Fire Support Bases Coral and Balmoral some 20 kilometres north of Bien Hoa city. Sitting astride a route used by North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces approaching or departing Saigon and nearby Bien Hoa, the bases comprised defended positions for artillery, mortars and armoured vehicles which in turn supported infantry patrols of the area.The North Vietnamese launched several strong attacks in an attempt to drive the Australians from this important area. The Australians also initiated combat during their many patrols outside the bases. These actions, over a 25-day period, made up Australia's costliest and most protracted battle of the Vietnam War. pp. 361, illusts, maps, enclosures. #0517 ( Please note: Over standard weight.
