'The Mutiny at Long Phuoc Hai' is a novella set in Australia and Vietnam in 1971. It follows the lives and loves of five Australians from different parts of the country who are conscripted to serve in the Vietnam War. One of them becomes an officer and is posted to the war as a platoon commander. The other four come under his control and for different reason, each develops a serious dislike for their young commander. As the unpopular war comes to an end for Australia, tensions between the officer and his men reach flashpoint on their last day outside the wire. Although the story is set in the Vietnam War, it raises questions about Australia's involvement in controversial wars since World War 2.
