    About the Book: The book is in the form of a satirical play, loosely styled on Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The main characters are caricatures of the leading figures in Australian politics in recent years. There is much back-room organising, back-stabbing, number crunching, plotting the downfall of Prime Ministers - not to mention plenty of crude and fruity language (used in context and reflecting the actual words and phrases of the characters on whom it is based). None of the characters will escape ridicule or emerge completely unscathed from the author’s sharp pen - or the even sharper tongues of their colleagues and co-plotters. About the Author: Kevin O’Donnell is a former Australian lawyer, who has been busy as an author since retiring from 43 years of legal practice. He has recently published his first book ‘Tales from the Oldest Profession – as told by a very common lawyer’. He is now an observer and commentator, with a keen eye on political trends and developments, and has condensed Australian political events into a rollicking tale, with a cast of colourful characters who might or might not resemble some of Australia’s leading politicians of recent times.

                    “Throughout history, we have valued such traits as bravery, loyalty and fortitude. For the soldiers who served in the Vietnam War, as in all wars, these qualities were a must. And yet, what about luck?” Loveless in the Nam delves into the early life of Colonel Frank Loveless, a veteran of several wars and a highly decorated Army officer who, despite his acclaim, is revealed to be both self-centered and somewhat of a coward. The story plunges into his exploits during the Vietnam War, wherein he was an unwilling participant in a very unpopular conflict as a young second lieutenant. He was thrust overnight into a world of chaos, blood, and gore, where he and the men under his command spent their days and nights humping over hills and through jungles in search of an elusive enemy, the Vietcong, otherwise known as Charlie. Mostly through pure luck and keeping his head down, Loveless endures a number of life-endangering actions and events, not all of which involved actual combat. Through it all, his mind is focused on just one thing: going home in one piece.
