This book tells the story of one of the last groups of Australian riflemen who served in the Vietnam War.
Gary McKay served as a rifle platoon commander in Viet Nam and was awarded the Military Cross for gallantry. His time in Viet Nam was the basis of his bestselling 'In Good Company: One Man's War in Vietnam'. His second book, 'Vietnam Fragments', recently re-released as 'Bullets, Beans and Bandages' is an invaluable oral history of Australia's war in Viet Nam. 'Delta Four', another bestseller, exposes the inner workings of a rifle company, giving the soldier's viewpoint of those aspects of war-fighting not found in the training pamphlets. His latest book, 'All Guts + No Glory', was written with Bob Buick and recounts Buick's experiences as a platoon sergeant in Viet Nam and in Australia's most famous battle at Long Tan. After almost 30 years military service, Gary retired from the army. He lives in Jervis Bay, NSW and currently works as a freelance historian and non-fiction writer.
