Behind Enemy Lines: An Australian SAS Soldier in Vietnam

O'Farrell, Terry


1 in stock

With his observant eye, Terry O Farrell s personal account of his career as an SAS soldier vividly captures not only the military actions of his time in Vietnam, but the human aspects of soldiering – from surviving the intense selection process and training, to dealing with the ever-present fear of combat. Terry relives the long tense stretches on patrol in the jungle, ears ever-alert to the sounds of the surrounding terrain and being caught by surprise and sudden contact with the enemy. He also entertains his readers with colourful tales of his experiences off the battlefield – the larrekin pranks during training, visits to Mama San and her girls, and the friendship and mutual trust that forms between soldiers. The book is a first-hand insight into the mind of a young SAS soldier. pp. 250 illusts #1218R/0120/0320/1120/0621
