Step back in time and rediscover the events that took place in Australia and elsewhere during 1966.

This is another volume in the series of thirty that cover the period 1939-1968 (note, not all are released yet). Each volume describes happenings that affected people during that year. The compiler hopes that the books will spark discussions between older and younger generations.

Arranged chronologically by month, Ron Williams has made his way through newspapers, magazines and other sources and has come up with most of the major events that occurred during the year. 

In 1966 the Vietnam War started to heat up in January, and got hotter as the year progressed. Our young 20-year-old boys were conscripted via a birthday lottery and by year end, 60 were dead. Joern Utzon ran up too many bills at the Sydney Opera House, so his resignation was accepted. President Johnson came all the way to Australia, roller games on TV were shockers, and our cemeteries were no place for the living. The year finished with a happy ending with the release from prison of William White, our most famous non-combatant.
