'The Regiment participated in many of the major battles of the Vietnam campaign, including Long Tan in 1966, and often played a key role in the outcomes. However, until now its unique achievements have all too often been lost within the larger accounts of the various infantry divisions to which the Regiment was attached' (dustwrapper blurb).
