This is the story of the Australians who discovered the Viet Cong's secret tunnels. A group of Australian Army engineers were among the first Australians to fight in Vietnam. They faced death every day defusing Viet Cong booby traps, then they partied all night in a casino they'd built in secret. They led hundreds of American troops to safety, but fought US military police to a standstill in the bars of South Vietnam. They built the Australian Task Force's base, then sabotaged a headquarters conference, booby-trapped showers and blew up a generator rather than kowtow to newly arrived officers. The men of Three Field Troop discovered a huge Viet Cong tunnel complex, and were the first Allied troops to follow the enemy down into their underground city. They were the original "tunnel rats", and this is their story.
