I am emailing with a new book release that may be of interest to the members of the RAR and the wider military community. Could you please forward far and wide.

Bob Anderson (The Owner) from John Douglas Publishing would like to locate and invite any Australians that served in South Vietnam with an ANZAC Battalion rotation for the book launch of the Australian version of the book Vietnam Anzacs by Lt. Col. (Rtd) Tony Howell MC,  RNZIR/NZSAS. The book launch will be in New Zealand on the 22nd of April, 2022, just prior to ANZAC Day, and will be hosted at the Australian High Commission, New Zealand.  72-76 Hobson Street, Thorndon, Wellington 6011, New Zealand. There will be a lot of military and civilian dignitaries there, including Peter Cosgrove, via skype.

Bob would like to invite/pass on their names to the High Commission of any Australians that are living in New Zealand that would like to be on the guest list and attend. I have no idea how many are living in NZ, but would be great to have some Australians at the Book Launch.

The book can be purchased  from

There are over 340 photographs, maps and diagrams to help the reader understand the many operations and battles fought in the Phuoc Tuy Province and the northern border area. The Foreword has been written by General the Hon Sir Peter Cosgrove. It also includes a comprehensive Roll of Honour of the 558 Australian and New Zealand men and women who died as a result of serving in the War. There is also a major Index covering people, places and units.
We believe that we have been able to publish a book that is the very best on this subject. Thanks must be extended to the Australian Battalion Associations and the New Zealand Company Associations whose help and advice made this book a reality.. This is a record, for Veterans and their families, to give them a clearer understanding, and to pass on to the next generation, what actually happened, and the sacrifices that was made by some remarkable people.

Available April 2022
