Summary
Now in a new edition, Trackers is a gritty and moving account of the Australian Army's little-known use of combat tracker dogs during the Vietnam War. Pater Haran, a Vietnam war veteran, tells his story with vivid and compelling immediacy, blending the terror of hunting the elusive Viet Cong with the tender relationship between him and his larrikin labrador-kelpie-cross, Caesar. A graphic portrayal of the timeless reality of war - the horror, the madness, the tedium, the dark humour - Trackers will hurl you into a surreal world of seething jungles, random minefields and lethal 'friendly fire'. Amid the mayhem, the author finds vital refuge in Caesar's playful innocence
