Price: Free
His name is engraved on the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC, but his remains lie in an English country churchyard. What led this young man, the only English officer to die in the service of the US Army in Vietnam, to forsake his career as a musician in Britain and take up arms against the Communist threat in south-east Asia? His full, frank, funny and sometimes shocking letters home hold the key. Lt. Anthony Harbord's sister Gay has painstakingly researched his life since he left England in 1965 to seek his American Dream. She literally retraces his steps from the fun-filled Florida paradise where he worked on the big-game fishing boats to the jungles of Vietnam where he distinguished himself as a brave and respected leader of men. She is searching for the brother she loved so much, thought she knew and who she lost so early on. It is a search for her Brother In Arms.

    I was in Tony's platoon at OCS; attended Ranger school with him; and served with him at the Florida Ranger Camp. In fact, it seems we both passed through the LA induction center within 3 months of one another. Nonetheless, I was more of an acquaintance and we were never personal friends. My view of Tony was that he was a bit of a class superstar while I was definitely mid-pack. I was years younger then Tony and much less mature, I felt. I was in awe of him. Yet now that I have read this really great book I find that Tony had so much more to him than I ever imagined. The book is wonderfully written and so true to it's time and place. The reproduced letters are gems. If anyone wants to experience the progression from civilian draftee to line officer in combat in 18 months - this is the place. Thanks for the great book. Jim Macy

    "Brother in Arms" Very intimate, compelling account of a family and its anxieties over a son who follows in his military hero grandfather's footsteps to war, but not for England but the USA. A unique account of what it was like to be caught up in an unpopular war against commumism in the sixties. An eyeopener for those old enough to protest and young enough to have been drafted should Harold Wilson have joined the Americans in their fight aainst the Viet Cong. Australia did and probably lived to regret it.

    "BROTHER IN ARMS" Tony was my Godfather so for me it was Great to learn more about a person who has touched my life in so many ways. Unfortunately we never got to spend any time together but now I feel as if we just got off the phone together. Thank you for answering all my questions in one GREAT BOOK.
