Australia and the Vietnam War | Conscription

Australia and the Vietnam War | Conscription | women in war, conscription, changes in society | Scoop.it
The Vietnam War was the longest conflict in which Australians have been involved; it lasted ten years, from 1962 to 1972, and involved some 60,000 personnel. A limited initial commitment of just 30 military advisers grew to include a battalion in 1965 and finally, in 1966, a task force. Each of the three services was involved, but the dominant role was played by the Army.
Sarah Carrigg's insight:

This website has some very useful information although I have found from reading through the information provided it is quite basic and short which is good as a starter to my research but not beneficial for deeper information.
