9781743317358: Tunnel Rats: The Larrikin Aussie Legends Who Discovered the Vietcong's Secret Weapon

The thrilling story of the young Australian Army engineers of 3 Field Troop who were the first allied soldiers to risk their lives in the darkness of the Vietcong tunnels of South Vietnam. Staring death squarely in the face every day, these young Australian Army engineers not only followed their enemy down into these unknown underground labyrinths, but matched the Vietcong's jungle warfare skills and defused thousands of their clever booby traps. Off duty, it was a different story. The bad boys of 3 Field Troop were a boozing, brawling, bonking bunch of larrikins, who cut a swathe through the bars and brothels of Saigon, fought American Military Police to a standstill, built a secret casino, and booby-trapped their own HQ to teach their officers a lesson. Thrilling, inspiring, and action packed, this is the true story of the unsung heroes of Australia's war in Vietnam. Living up to their motto of "We Make and We Break," they created the legend of the Tunnel Rats.

About the Author:

Jimmy Thomson is a journalist, author, and screenwriter whose credits include the ABC-TV series Rain Shadow. His most recent book is Snitch: Crooked Cops and Kings Cross Crims by the Man Who Saw it All. Sandy MacGregor commanded 3 Field Troop in Vietnam, where he won the Military Cross. He served in the Army for thirty years, finishing as a colonel in the Reserves.

Review:

The adventure is peppered with tales of insubordination, boozing and brawling. There's enough danger, action and humour for a TV mini-series. A ripping yarn. * Herald Sun * Authentic and compelling. * Courier Mail *
