Summary
In 1966, Steve Gower, a young gunner captain in the 101st Field Battery, was sent to Vietnam. He would serve in what is arguably Australia's most controversial war in the dangerous role of forward observer with the 5th and 6th battalions of the Royal Australian Regiment. In Rounds Complete, Gower describes living the life of an infantry soldier, tramping the ground and joining his infantry mates in a variety of operations including search and destroy, cordon and search, heliborne and road-protection operations and company patrols from forward operating bases. He describes the inevitable boredom and monotony of the routine, contrasting this with the heightened senses of the men as they prepared to move forward with the 'safety catch off', the nervous anticipation of what might lie ahead, the exhilaration and, above all, the camaraderie
