The story of the Australian army's little-known use of combat tracker dogs during the Vietnam War. A war veteran tells his story with immediacy, blending the terror of hunting and encountering the elusive Viet Cong with the tender relationship between a naive young Australian soldier and his dog. The book covers a surreal world of seething jungles, random minefields, and lethal friendly fire. Amid the mayhem, the author finds vital refuge in the innocence of his larrikin labrador-kelpie cross, Caesar.
