Summary
What I thought I knew about the Viet Nam War didn't even come close to scratching the surface of what the Viet Nam experience really was all about for my father and his fellow veterans. After going to Viet Nam with him, I felt I finally understood him a little better' - Kelly McKay. Going Back is a detailed and highly personal collection of the experiences of Australian Viet Nam War veterans as they journey back to the land where they once fought and lost their innocence. Veteran and author Gary McKay has travelled with and interviewed over thirty veterans, and their partners and families, who have returned. It records their strong and sometimes unexpected reactions to returning to a country that has in places changed beyond all recognition, and is elsewhere all too familiar. It also contains essential practical advice about travelling to Viet Nam
