Barry Heard – 17 October 2013

Well Done, Those Men by Barry Heard dover

Barry Heard was a country boy. “My life was good. It was simple. I had been reared in a community that fostered co-operation, the nurturing of young people and responsibility to others as a priority.”

But Vietnam changed all that…

Well Done, Those Men is a human moving, and brutally honest account of one man’s emotionally racked journey from naive country boy to jungle soldier, psychologically scarred veteran, and ultimately triumphant victor over the demons within.”
Greg Thom, The Herald Sun

Barry’s short stories have recieved several prizes, including the Sir Edmund Herring Memorial Award and the Sir Weary Dunlop Prize. His other books include The View from Connor’s Hill, a prequel to Well Done, Those Men; and Tag, a novel. He lives with his family in rural Victoria.
