In an intensely personal account, Barry Heard explains how as a conscript he was was of the many young men sent off to Vietnam for a year, completely unprepared for the emotional and psychological impact of what they would do and what they would have done to them there. As a result, he spent the next thirty years having a 'slow-motion' breakdown.
The story of his long journey 'home' from Vietnam is an inspiring story of a life reclaimed, and gives voice to a lost generation of Australian men.

Comments about Well Done, Those Men:
A great understanding of what some soldiers went through, how they were dismissed by just about all upon their return from Vietnam. A sad insight into their psychological battle with themselves in peace time, their will to survive and wanting to come good. And, there were some that were not so lucky, those who did not make it, those who succumbed to their mental illness. How sad and for what.
