Synopsis : "To Long Tan" is the second volume of the "Official History" of Australia's involvement in Southeast Asian conflicts from 1948-1975 and the first of two volumes on Australian ground operations in Vietnam. It explains the development of strategy and defence policies since World War II, the rationale for the deployment of forces to Vietnam in the context of international events, and the distinctive experience of those forces until the Battle of Long Tan in August 1966. It throws new light on Long Tan itself and depicts the Australian experience in Vietnam. Ian McNeill addresses the conflict between the Allies as different methods of operating were employed, and details the great changes to the army these new directions created.
