Vietnam War pilots and crews of Australia's fleet of Iroquois helicopters

The Vietnam War in the 1960's and 1970's was characterised by the mobility provided by Iroquois UH-1H helicopters. They were used as commuter taxis to carry troops in and out of operations areas, to back up troops with supplies and ammunition, and to evacuate the wounded and ill. This is the graphic story of the pilots and crews of Australia's fleet of Iroquois helicopters during that time, the Dustoffs and the Bushrangers, their triumphs and losses.
