Description
 
Colonel Peter Scott D.S.O. commanded the 3rd Battalion The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR) known as 'Old Faithful' at Woodside in Australia from February 1969 to February 1971, and in Vietnam until October 1971. This book 'Command in Vietnam' is an outstanding personal record of a Commanding Officer in Vietnam.
