Publisher Comments:

Trackers is a gritty and moving story that reveals the Australian Army's little known use of combat tracker dogs during the Vietnam War. A war veteran tells his story with vivid and compelling immediacy, blending the terror of hunting and encountering the elusive Vietcong with the tender relationship between a naive young Australian soldier and his larrikin labrador-kelpie cross, Caesar.

Synopsis:

This gritty and moving book reveals the Australian Army's little-known use of combat tracker dogs during the Vietnam War. A war veteran tells his story with vivid and compelling immediacy, blending the hunting of the elusive Viet Cong with his tender relationship with his larrikin labrador/kelpie cross, Caesar. A graphic portrayal of the timeless reality of war - the horror, the madness, the tedium, the dark humor - author Peter Haran hurls readers into a surreal world of seething jungles, lethal "friendly fire", and random minefields. Amid the mayhem, the author finds vital refuge in Caesar's playful innocence.
