Abstract:

In 1962, Australian Army adviser Lieutenant, Jack Burns, is deployed as part of 'The Team' to the Mekong Delta, the hotspot of the Vietnam War, where he is about to undergo the ultimate test of his conviction. As Jack is honing his craft in the Delta, Tran, a teenage soldier girl with the North Vietnamese Army, makes her way down the Ho Chi Minh Trail and into the Delta, where she must stare down the US military's overwhelming firepower at the Battle of Ap Bac. In a war without frontlines, Jack and Tran must fight enemies foreign and domestic if they are to survive the most dangerous place in the world; South Vietnam. Audacious in scope, True North is a powerful love story set in the early years of the Vietnam War and is a page turner that explains the geo-political, economic and social aspect of the war; providing insights to the antecedents of America and Australia's eventual failure and asks the question - can enemies find true love during wartime?
