Trackers: The Untold Story of Australian Dogs of War

Author(s): Peter Haran

History

Trackers is a gritty and moving account that reveals the Australian Army's little-known use of combat tracker dogs during he Vietnam war. A war veteran tells his 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. A graphic portrayal of the timeless reality of war - the horror, the madness, the tedium, the dark humour - Trackers hurls you into a surreal world of jungle, random minefields and lethal 'friendly fire'. Amid the mayhem, the author finds vital refuge in Caesar's playful innocence.
