The untold story of Australian dogs of war, the real-life story of a combat tracking team in the Vietnam War.
Trackers is a gritty and moving account that reveals the Australian Amy’s little known use of combat tracker dogs during the Vietnam War. A war veteran tells hi story with vivid and compelling immediacy, blending the terror of hunting the elusive Viet Cong with the tender relationship between him and his larrikin Labrador-Kelpie-cross, Caesar.
Foreword by Major (ret) Leo van de Kamp, Queensland
Peter Haran was first posted to Vietnam in 1967, aged just 19, as a dog handler with one of the Army’s first Combat Tracking Teams. He retuned after a year to become a war dog trainer in Sydney, and was re-assigned to Vietnam in 1970 as an Infantry section commander.Buy Now
