This gritty and moving book reveals the Australian Army's little-known use of combat tracker dogs during the Vietnam War.

A war veteran tells his story with vivid and compelling immediacy, blending the hunting of the elusive Viet Cong with his tender relationship with his larrikin labrador/kelpie cross, Caesar.

A graphic portrayal of the timeless reality of war - the horror, the madness, the tedium, the dark humor - author Peter Haran hurls readers into a surreal world of seething jungles, lethal "friendly fire", and random minefields. Amid the mayhem, the author finds vital refuge in Caesar's playful innocence.

About the Author

Peter Haran, Vietnam vet and bestselling author (Trackers), presents this compelling book that shows what it was like for Australians fighting in Vietnam - and how the suffering continued long after they'd returned home. Peter served as a dog handler with the Tracking Team 2 Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (RAR) during their first tour of duty in 1967-1968.
