19 Bower-Miles, Tony 'Bomber' & Whittaker, Mark Bomber. From Vietnam to Hell and Back.
Sydney Macmillan 2009 1405039353 / 9781405039352 
Very Good condition. Only just a hint of corner wear. Illustrated with Colour and Black & White Photographs. Gift inscription to inside of front cover. 292 pages Tony 'Bomber' Bower-Miles was a young sapper in the Australian Army when he first went to Vietnma in 1969. Landmines were one of the biggest threats faced by troops on both sides and much of Tony's work involved the dangerous task of clearing them. He saw mates killed and horribly injured around him and this left him with a deep-rooted hatred of these deadly weapons. He returned to Australia scarred and battered and spent a lot of time suffering alcohol addiction - he could easily have been lost, just another grim statistic of the Vietnam war. But in 2001, he returned to South-East Asia and established the Vietnam Veterans Mine Clearing Team [an NGO with a difference] and so those who once fought now help others still suffering the consequences of the conflict. ID262226
