Item description for Well Done, Those Men: Memoirs of a Vietnam Veteran by Barry Heard...
In an intensely personal account, this chronicle draws on a young conscript and his comrades' lives before, during, and after the Vietnam War. Offering an Australian perspective of the trauma that occurs after such a deeply emotional and psychological experience, this story is a vivid, piercingly honest portrayal of a post-war breakdown and recovery. This sensitive and unforgettable account of one man's struggle through a war and a mental illness is at once a tribute to the soldiers who fought beside him and a lucid account of the horrors he faced.

Reviews - What do customers think about Well Done, Those Men: Memoirs of a Vietnam Veteran?
Well done, Baz! Jan 23, 2008
This reviewer read through the book in one 24-hour sitting, it was that engrossing! I have since read it yet again, taking away enough more understanding of what he, and I in a different part of Vietnam, brought back as scars. Some of these can heal over time; some will never heal. One is struck by the need to tell every veteran we meet: "Well done!" We must also tell them thanks for serving, and WELCOME HOME!
