New Holland Publishers (Australia) Pty. Ltd., 2002. Softcover (14 x 21 cm), 240 pages. ISBN: 1864367601. Very Good condition. Bumped, scuffed/scratched. Lightly creased at edges/corners. "In 1965 Australia invited itself to a war. For many years it was widely accepted that American political and diplomatic pressure was the reason for Australia's entry into the Vietnam War. However, top secret documents from the period indicate that Australia had volunteered the use of combat troops some time before the decision was announced in April 1965. Michael Sexton goes behind the scenes of the high-level meetings of politicians and diplomats in Canberra and Washington, depicting those who took their countries into the quagmire of Vietnam and demolishing the myths that have grown up about the Vietnam years. It is a story that will still stick many Australians and it raises questions that remain relevant to Australia's role in world affairs in a new century." Weight: (before packaging): 550g
