From the Murdoch Books website. This mob must be joking about checking the integrity of the books contents they publish?

TO MURDOCH BOOKS AUSTRALIA

sales@murdochbooks.com.au

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

We write on behalf of many thousands of Australias War Veterans
and their families, friends and supporters.

We refer to the book "The War Within", allegedly written by a Don
Tate and published by Murdoch Books.

As you and we know many books have been written by many War Veterans
on the role Australia and her War Veterans have played in the many
conflicts our country has been engaged in. We make it clear we support
accurate, honest and even controversial books which have been or may
be written on Australias engagement in War and we strongly support
the freedom of all to honestly recount our history from the Official
War record and from private experience.

We do not support authors who lie, embellish and distort
Australias War history and we do not support War Veterans who use
the written media to fabricate their own War Service. We also do not
support any authors who denigrate their own War time mates to make
money and ingratiate themselves with the Australian public.

Don Tate, author of "The War Within", has engaged in such
behaviour and his behaviour has been exposed by the statements and
accounts of those he served with on a day to day basis in Vietnam. His
fabrications and distortions have also been exposed by long serving
Military members who understand the Military system and who have
produced proof from the historical record and their own vast
experience that much of what Tate says is nonsense. Tate has no
knowledge of Regimental life or how the Military operates. He was a
Private Soldier who served a very short period in the Army.

We refer you to the website www.austvetmatters.net
to read of the professional and personal rebuttals of the scurrilous
and vile allegations made by Tate and the stupidity and inaccuracies
which his book contains regarding the Vietnam War and the men he
served with.

Despite our availing you of these matters you have doggedly refused
to withdraw this book from publication and refused to insist Don Tate
record accuracy in his book. War Veterans are entitled to write books
but they are not entitled to lie, distort and misrepresent matters for
their own financial gain. Murdoch Books is also gaining financially
from the lies and distortions contained in Tates book. We will not
accept this type of behaviour.

We are recommending to our very large readership that they do not buy
any Murdoch Books.


We have attached a document which gives you an idea of the extremely
wide readership we have.

Yours.

AVM
