All The Way (Vietnam War)

All The Way (Vietnam War)

  • $80.00


In 1966, as Australian and American troops fought Communism in the paddy fields of Vietnam, the allies also fought a political, strategic and secret war against each other. Historian Paul Ham presents his argument that the conflict with the USA over Vietnam about how to fight and why redefined Australia's relationship with its most important ally and with its Asian neighbours - in ways utterly unintended when Canberra first encouraged the US to commit to Vietnam then manufactured its own invitation to the war. Through characters political (Menzies, Holt, Caldwell, Johnson) and military (brilliant, malevolent Ted Serong and Barry Petersen, the Tiger Man) Ham tells the story of the alliance under its greatest strain.
