Tony "Bomber" Bower-Miles was a young sapper in the Australian Army when he first went to Vietnam in 1969. Landmines were one of the biggest threats faced by troops on both sides, and much of Bomber's work involved task of clearing them. He saw mates and colleagues killed and horribly injured around him, leaving him with a deep-rooted hatred of these deadly weapons

He returned to Australia scarred, battered and unable to relate to a peacetime world. Alcohol became his way of escaping, and his life spiralled down into addiction and violence. He could easily have been lost – another vet unable to cope, another grim statistic put down to the tragedy of Vietnam.

But Bomber wasn't ready to let the war beat him. In 2001, he returned to South East Asia, putting his old skills to work in the dangerous job of clearing the millions of forgotten land mines that litter Cambodia. Starting from scratch, with makeshift equipment, Bomber established the Vietnam Veterans Mine Clearing Team, an NGO with a difference – as those who fought now help others still suffering the consequences of the conflict.

Bomber is his story. Tough and uncompromising, it reveals the true face of war in all its brutality. But it also tells of redemption and humanity in the hardest of cirumstances.
