For the next 12 months V4 and W2 along with A, B and D Australian Infantry Companies and a combined Support Company of NZ and Australian personnel, operated in the Phuoc Tuy Province.
Victor Four Company took part in many other Operations and departed Vietnam on the 8th May 1970.
This is the story of the formation, Vietnam deployment and post Vietnam period of Victor 4 as written by the troops themselves.

    "It is rare that a military history is written from the perspective of the soldier, by the soldier. This book is one of those. It is written by the officers and men of Victor 4 Company, New Zealanders who served in the Vietnam War from 1969 - 1970 who tell about their experiences in combat in a faraway land. We have written the book not to celebrate war but to tell the next generation about what we experienced. It is right we should do this for our children and for our relatives and friends so that they may know what we did. It is a testament also to those seven comrades who gave their lives for their country. May they rest in peace for eternity".

    Sir Wira Gardiner

    "This book is a testament to the comradeship that comes from having served together under fire. The training and leadership demonstrated by your officers, NCOs and men will provide a wonderful source of encouragement and inspiration for today's young men and women".

    Lt Gen Rhys Jones
    Chief of Defence Force
