NOT A HERO IN SIGHT

Author: Brad Cooper

Not a Hero In sight Book CoverMany authors have written of heroes and victories, of which Australia has had more than its fair share, but the earthy and ridiculous may appeal more to those of us who can identify with the less than heroic.
These are stories which could not be told to the child who innocently asks “What did you do in the war Grandpa?”
Not A Hero In Sight is an irreverent account of an ex-digger’s life and reflections from his early childhood to the present with the emphasis on the period before, during and after the Vietnam Conflict.
It is bawdy, sardonic, humorous, delightfully politically incorrect, honest and most importantly true.
Every Australian digger, and for that matter, ex-servicemen from any country, could relate to these tales.

All civilians should also get a giggle out of real-life soldiering.

WARNING: This book contains sexual references and strong language
