Comments: This book describes the unique story of armoured, artillery and infantry soldiers drawn together in Vietnam in 1967-68 to form 6 Troop, A Squadron, 3rd Cavalry Regiment.

The Troop served in six M108 self-propelled howitzers, loaned at no cost from the US Army. Because of casualties and unit rotations, 35 men served in the Troop. The book records how the Troop was formed and trained in-country, deployed under tight restrictions and overcame many obstacles to achieve the success that it did.

The soldiers learnt a greater variety of skills and displayed a level of responsibility and initiative not normally required of their peers. 6 Troop demonstrated an ability to adapt which, history shows, occurs time and again with Australian soldiers at war. Paperback, 91 pages, includes 24 pages of colour photographs.

From the library of the late Brigadier Bryant AM (Royal Australian Armoured Corps) with his signature on the title page.

Includes list of vehicle crews.
