"Townsville lined the footpath as we marched down to the quay. This clipping from the paper shows us young and strong and clean. And there's me in my slouch hat, with my SLR and greens. God help me, I was only nineteen." John Schumann's unforgettable lyrics about the Vietnam War are etched in our memories and into our history books. Now they've been warmly brought to life by one of Australia's best-loved illustrators.

Famous Australian Vietnam War song now in Picture Book form. Not suitable for Littlies though. Middle to upper Primary School. It is the kind of book that needs to be read with a parent or adult as it can invoke a lot of questions and discusssion on war.
