In the ANZAC Spirit covers the training of 4RAR in preparation for it's move to South Vietnam in 1968. The inclusion of two New Zealand companies into 4RAR upon it's arrival in South Vietnam, made this a truly ANZAC battalion. The battalion's numerous operations against the Viet Cong during this tour, form the major part of this fascinating book. - Taken from dust jacket description.
