Abstract This book is about an Australian soldier killed at war in Vietnam. It is about the events surrounding his dying and the subsequent award to him of Australia’s most distinguished medal for gallantry under fire, the Victoria Cross. And it is an examination, from a contemporary perspective, of the significance of those events for Australian life and Australian culture. At the time of writing, Dr Ian Walters was Senior Lecturer in Anthropology at the Northern Territory University (now Charles Darwin University).
