    PDF/EPUB Highways to a War PDF ¿ Highways to PDF/EPUB or ´ cloudunblock.co highways book, Highways to pdf, Highways to a War MOBIThis an excellent novel by a venerable Australian author Christopher Koch probably best known for his novel set in Jakarta in 1965 The Year of Living Dangerously filmed by Peter Weir and starring Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver In Highways to a War Koch returns to South East Asia and the great conflagration which engulfed Indochina between 1965 1975 The hero of the story is Mike Langford a Tasmanian like the author himself who travels to South East Asia in 1965 to make his name as a news cameraman In Singapore he is assigned to cover the commencement of the American buildup in South Vietnam Anyone familiar with the non fiction book Despatches by Michael Herr will recognise the mileu of the Saigon press corps to which he becomes attached Langford is I think loosely based on the legendary Australian war correspondent Damien Parer but his story and ultimate fate parallels that of Sean Flynn and Dana Stone who went missing in Cambodia in 1970 and were reportedly executed by the Khmer
