In this intensely personal account, Barry Heard draws on his own experiences as a young conscript, along with those of his comrades, to look back at life before, during, and after the Vietnam War. The result is a sympathetic vision of a group of young men who were sent off to war completely unprepared for the emotional and psychological impact it would have on them. It is also a vivid and honest portrayal of the author's post-war, slow-motion breakdown, and how he dealt with it.

Well Done, Those Men attempts to make sense of what Vietnam did to the soldiers who fought there. It deals with the comic absurdity of their military training and the horror of the war they fought, and is unforgettably moving in recounting what happened to Barry and his comrades when they returned home to Australia.

    " A very personal account of Australia's role in Vietnam and the effect of conscription on those not ready for war. Very moving. "

    " A very valuable story that explains the journey of an Aussie soldier during Vietnam - and most importantly what happened at home. I feel I learnt so much. Thanks Barry "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Michael | 6/12/2013

    " A must read for anyone who wants to understand the experience of going to Vietnam and coming back again to a society that did not understand or welcome those who had been sent. Sometimes funny, sometimes harrowing, always thought-provoking, even for those who are not Aussies. "
