More About This Title Well Done, Those Men


Examining the effects of the Vietnam War on both the author and an entire generation of Australian war veterans, this autobiography tells the story of life before, during, and after Vietnam. From inadequate basic training to the horrors of the war itself, as well as the guilt, anxiety, and alienation felt upon returning home, the account documents the psychology, trauma, and ultimate redemption of one veteran of a lost war.


Barry Heard was conscripted in the first national service ballot and served in Vietnam as an infantryman and radio operator. His stories have received the Sir Edmund Herring Memorial award and the Sir Weary Dunlop prize.
