Red Haze : Australians and New Zealanders in Vietnam
2006biography single work 'The Vietnam War was like no other the Australians and New Zealanders had fought. There was no front-line, no safe zone, no glory. In the jungles the Vietcong seemed to be everywhere, and nowhere — and winning. To find the Vietcong, a country was torn apart. In questioning why they were there, Australia and New Zealand almost tore themselves apart.' (Source: Black Dog Books)
Scarecrow Army : The Anzacs at Gallipoli
2005biography non-fiction single work "On 25 April 1915, thousands of Australians and New Zealanders landed at
an unnamed cove on the Gallipoli peninsula. They had come to fight the
Turks. They thought the battle would be over in three days, but months
later they were still in the trenches they'd dug at the landing.
Gallipoli fast became a graveyard where bodies lay above the ground and
the living slept under it. The Anzacs went looking for the adventure of a
lifetime" -- Book Jacket.
