“A Duty Done” – A summary of operations by The Royal Australian Regiment in the Vietnam War 1965-1972
Dedicated to those who served
This is a book that is a fine addition to the library of books reflecting on the operations of The Royal Australian Regiment. The book is easy to read, there are plenty of photographs and maps and all the Battalions who served in South Vietnam get a mention.
Extract from the Preface:
“… The book attempts to illustrate the nature of those operations, especially the actions at company, platoon and section level where most of it occurred…. In the process of selecting suitable operations, I was guided by the availability of operational reports that were lucid and accurate. …” – Fred Fairhead
