Robert Kearney and Peter Haran co-authored CROSSFIRE
and FLASHBACK, the best selling books about Australian
soldiers in Vietnam.
Robert served as a Section Commander with 9 Platoon, Charlie Company
and later with the Reconnaissance Platoon of "The Tiger,"
5 Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (RAR) during the battalion's
first tour of duty 1966-1967.
Peter served as a dog handler with the Tracking Team 2 Battalion,
Royal Australian Regiment (RAR) during their first tour of duty
Both men survived their first tour of duty relatively unscathed
and returned to Vietnam in 1971, this time serving in the same battalion,
"Old Faithful" 3 Battalion Royal Australian Regiment (RAR).
Peter wrote an excellent and moving account of his service with
2 RAR and how he shared his war experience with a tracker dog called
Caesar. Caesar was a larrikin, a great mate and Peter's most trusted
companion throughout their tour of duty together in 1967-1968.
