Tale of courage, terror, madness and survival

In October 1966, 28 soldiers were chosen to form Australia?s first specialist Reconnaissance Platoon in the Vietnam War. One of this platoon?s section commanders was a 20-year old regular soldier called Bob Kearney, who led a series of deadly patrols, operating in isolation and extreme danger ahead of the main Australian forces. This is the story of Bob and his unit's tale of courage, terror, madness and survival, told by fellow Vietnam veteran Peter Haran, best-selling author of Trackers and Robert Kearney.
