Why everything
you think you know about Australia's Vietnam War is wrong


When Mark Dapin first interviewed Vietnam veterans and wrote about the
war, he swallowed (and regurgitated)
every misconception. He wasn't alone. In Australia's Vietnam, Dapin reveals that every
stage of Australia's commitment to the Vietnam War has been misunderstood,
misinterpreted and shrouded in myth. From army claims that every national
serviceman was a volunteer; and the level of atrocities committed by Australian
troops; to the belief there were no welcome home parades until the late 1980s and
returned soldiers were met by angry protesters. Australia's Vietnam is a major contribution to the understanding of
Australia's experience of the war and will change the way we think about memory and military history.
