Review

'Heard gives meaning and sense to overused cliches such as "stolen youth," "buried horrors" and even "mateship."'

--Lorien Kaye "Age "

'Heard's recounting of his Vietnam tour is chilling. But it is the last third of the book that really hits home. In less than 100 pages, Heard describes 30 years of hell ... this is an important book on a still hidden topic, and one that deserves a wide audience.'

--Australian Bookseller & Publisher

'This is a searingly honest account of one man's battle to overcome his tormented past in an unpopular war and to recover from a complete breakdown.'

--Examiner

'Well Done, Those Men is a human, moving, and brutally honest account of one man's emotionally racked journey from naive country boy to jungle soldier, psychologically scarred veteran, and ultimately triumphant victor over the demons within.'

--Herald Sun

'It's profound sadness makes Well Done, Those Men a difficult book to read. Ultimately, though, ... it is also an uplifting work, for it is testament to human resilience and, thus, to the possiblity of personal redemption no matter how painful the catalytic experience.'

--Reviews in Australian Studies

'Well Done, Those Men is highly recommended, as a glimpse into Australia 40 years ago, as an honest account of fighting in Vietnam, and as an entertaining and thought-provoking read.'

--Canberra Times

'This is a powerful, beautifully written book that should be read by everyone who wants to understand the evil, senseless personal damage done by war.'

--Sydney Morning Herald

'Heard's well-written account will appeal to anyone interested in the impact of the Vietnam War on New Zealand and Australian soldiers. It provides valuable and illuminating perspective on the troubles that have afflicted many of them since their return.'

--New Zealand International Review

'Barry Heard's book is the autobiography of a Vietnam veteran, but it's so perceptive it represents a whole generation ... The book is very well written, clear in its descriptions, self-aware in its assessments and, surprisingly, not depressing to read.'

--Quadrant

'Heard writes honestly and painfully of that soiled era ...'

--Weekend Australian
