Thommo returns from Vietnam to an Australia that regards him as a mercenary guilty of war crimes. He begins to develop all kinds of physical and mental problems, and thinks it must only be him until he finds he is not alone. Ten mates, all who remain of his platoon who fought and died in the Battle of Long Tan, are affected the same way.

Now Thommo and his mates are 11 angry men out for revenge. They rope in an ex-Viet Cong with 'special skills' and his own secret agenda. They're the 'Dirty Dozen', just like the movie. Only it's real life, and they're so screwed up they couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag. That is, until a woman of character steps in. Wendy's infant daughter is dying and needs a bone-marrow transplant. Hell hath no fury, as she sets out to mould this bunch of ex-jungle fighters into a unit that will fight for justice, by fair means or foul.

    " A really sweet, sad story. Also, I think, a timely affirmation that you can support your vets and troops no matter how you feel about a war. "

    " This Courtenay novel is an excellent story of men affected by Agent Orange and the various woes of war. For me it is not as great as some of his novels, but very enjoyable and listening to Humphrey Bower is always pure pleasure. "

    " I loved the book. It is a short read but enjoyable and resourceful. Unusual characters that unite to address a complex and difficult problem. "
