'This is a powerful, beautifully written book that should be read by everyone who wants to understand the evil, senseless personal damage done by war.' - Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald


Author Information

Barry Heard was conscripted in Australia's first national-service ballot, and served in Vietnam as an infantryman and radio operator. After completing his national service, he returned home, where he found himself unable to settle down. He had ten different jobs in his first ten years back, worked as a teacher for a further ten years, and then held several mid-managerial posts before succumbing to a devastating breakdown due to severe post-traumatic stress disorder. Since recovering, Barry has decided to concentrate on his writing. His short stories have received several prizes, including the Sir Edmund Herring Memorial Award and the Sir Weary Dunlop Prize. Barry's books include the bestselling memoir Well Done, Those Men, its prequel, The View from Connor's Hill, and the World War I novel Tag. He lives with his family in rural Victoria.
