Dear Mr H Jusr read. WDTM. I was conscripted and served with the RAE working with infantry, tracks and tanks. Thanks for the book. When you say how we had all the firepower and they had only themselves and yet they won really rang true with me. More people should make that point. For the record: service Number 1734049. Unit 2Tp 1st Field Sqd RAE. Tour of duty Nov 68 to Nov 69. All the best. Peter Riedlinger

I have just read Tag so sad but so true. My Dad was in charge of an RHA gun team at Mons and survived the war. He was 45 before he married. Your book may tell us why. I also have books by Jill the Duchess of Hamilton, (First to Damascus) & (Gallipoli to Gaza) She was an Australian war correspondant in Vietnam. Many thanks for your book

I have just finished reading your book which I borrowed from the local Library for my Vet husband. When he finished reading it I was told..I recommend you read this and it could help you understand what happened. It's taken me a while but I am so glad I did. Thanks for having the courage to tell it like it is. We have had some good conversation since. Thankyou.

Hi, I have just finished your book. Thank you for writing your story which is very moving & shows there are no winners in war. I wish I'd been more aware years ago & been able to show more compassion to people I knew who were Vietnam vets. Thank you for doing what was asked of you so long ago. You & others who go to war have my upmost respect. Cheers christine

Dear Sir: I just finished reading "Well Done, Those Men" and wanted to let you know I found it to be one of the most powerful books I've ever read. The copy of the book I read is owned by a close friend of nearly 35 years (Greg A., 101st Airborne) and was signed by you in 2005. I never served in the military, but have gained at least a modicum of insight into the life of the grunt on account of my long years of friendship with Greg. Your book has given me a much greater appreciation for those suffering with PTSD. Great writing about a very difficult war and the struggles you and other soldiers have dealt with since. With great respect - Jim Luby
