Portrait

Terry O'Farrell enlisted in the Australian Army when the war in Viet Nam started gathering momentum. He completed two combat tours of Viet Nam as an SAS soldier and went on 40 patrols behind enemy lines as a forward scout, a patrol signaller and eventually as a patrol commander, and was wounded twice. Following Vietnam he remained in the Army rising through the ranks to Major. Terry now lives in Perth with his wife and four children.

Pressestimmen

'Captures the true day to day existence of an Infantry solider...I had tears rolling down my face at some of the shenanigans...to being brought back to the nasty reality that was the war we all knew. The humour when "setting up" either a fellow soldier or an instructor and suffering the consequences or feeling "Oh so smug" when you got away with it makes for great reading.' - Bill McLaughlin
