Vietnam ANZACS by Kevin Lyles

Book Description

The Australian Task Force of infantry, tanks and SAS with attached New Zealand units, was probably the most consistently successful formation in Vietnam. It had a high proportion of experienced regular soldiers who had recently fought in Malaya and Borneo, widely admired by the US forces for their professionalism and expertise in jungle fighting - using tactics quite different from the US Army. ANZAC advisors served with the ARVN forces and US Special Forces in Vietnam for a full ten years and were very influential - members of this Australian Army Training Team also won all four of the Victoria Crosses awarded for Vietnam.
