My Vietnam is a best-selling 208 page hardcover coffee table book containing over 600 colour photographs taken by veterans of the Vietnam conflict. It is beautifully presented on quality art paper and has been described as "one of the finest recordings of any Australian conflict". The photographs are laconically captioned and deliberately non-confrontational. They depict the daily lives of many of the 60,000 Australian troops who served in Australia's longest military conflict from 1962 to 1972.
The work has been described as "images that veterans of the conflict would like to remember, not those they would like to forget". As well as being widely accepted by the veteran community, the book is used by many counselling services as an 'ice breaker' when helping veterans with stress related disorders.
Now in its second print run, it continues to be one of the most sought after reference works available on the subject.
