Here we are, fighting alongside the so-called mightiest nation on earth with all the firepower you could ask forjets, B52s, tanks, gunships, rockets, napalm, you name itand the VC are creeping around with a rifle each and we still can't beat the buggers! And it's getting worse, not better.

It's 1969. The sixties are still swinging, man is headed for the moon and surfing-mad Davey is out to win the inaugural Newcastle Under-14 Surf Championship.

But when his older brother Tom is drafted to fight in the army, the far-away war in Vietnam creates waves very close to home.

Book features :

  • Chronicles Australia’s involvement and attitude to the Vietnam war.
  • Set against the end of the swinging sixties and the clash of social genres and generations—the surf culture, the music, the protest movements.
  • New edition, part of the refresh of this classic series.
