Vietnam War pilots and crews of Australia's fleet of Iroquois helicopters.

The Vietnam War in the 1960's and 1970's was characterised by the mobility provided by Iroquois UH-1H helicopters. They were used as commuter taxis to carry troops in and out of operations areas, to back up troops with supplies and ammunition, and to evacuate the wounded and ill. This is the graphic story of the pilots and crews of Australia's fleet of Iroquois helicopters during that time, the Dustoffs and the Bushrangers, their triumphs and losses.

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.
