As a typical 20 year old Dave Morgan was forced into extraordinary circumstances in Vietnam that exposed him to an atmosphere of ever-present danger and sheer terror that would impact him forever. His return to a divided Australia would isolate him further.
Using the original letters he sent home to his mother, his own recollections and diary entries, and the short stories of seven other veterans, he captures the unbelievable danger and horror that these young men experienced in Vietnam. In contrast he also describes how Vietnam established life-long feelings of intense loyalty, trust and mateship between the men that served there.
Dave’s story helps to illustrate how many of those who go to war and survive, are scarred forever.
