Description - Crossfire by Peter Haran
In October, 1966, 28 soldiers were chosen to form Australia's first specialist Reconnaissance Platoon in the Vietnam War. One of this platoon's section commanders was a 20-year-old regular soldier called Bob Kearney, who led a series of deadly patrols while the first Australian Task Force established its headquarters in South Vietnam. Operating in isolation and extreme danger ahead of the main Australian forces, these young men braved regular enemy contacts, mines, booby traps, and the natural perils of the teeming jungle. This is the story of Bob and his unit - a tale of courage, terror, madness and survival, told by fellow Vietnam vetran Peter Haran.
