AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This article historicises two particularly significant examples of Australian Vietnam War literature: When the Buffalo Fight, written by Lex McAulay and published in 1980, and In Good Company: One Man's War in Vietnam, written by Gary McKay and published in 1987. ... It is argued that these texts contributed to a revitalised collective consciousness of the role Australian soldiers played in the Vietnam War and that this continues to wield significant political influence, particularly in relation to how Australia's role in more contemporary wars is understood and commemorated.'
