For Australians i Kokoda i is the iconic battle of World War II yet few people know the names of the men who fought on the track or even the details of what happened More Australians died in the months of fighting in Papua than in any other campaign of World War II br br Now bestselling author Peter FitzSimons tells the i Kokoda i story in a gripping and moving style for all Australians i Kokoda i was a defining battle for Australia where a small force of young ill equipped Australians engaged a highly experienced and hitherto unstoppable Japanese force on a narrow precarious jungle track Again and again the outnumbered Australians risked everything to stop the Japanese from advancing along the track towards mainland Australia br br Conditions on the track were hellish rain was constant the terrain close to inhospitable food and ammunition supplies were practically non existent and the men constantly battled malaria and dysentery as well as the Japanese The Australian troops were wounded and exhausted beyond belief but always found that extra bit of spirit to fight on with the help of the local people br br i Kokoda i is a superb blend of authority and gripping storytelling history at its best, b Love him or loathe him Ned Kelly has been at the heart of Australian culture and identity since he and his gang were tracked down in bushland by the Victorian police and came out fighting dressed in bulletproof iron armour made from farmers ploughs b br br Historians still disagree over virtually every aspect of the eldest Kelly boy s brushes with the law Did he or did he not shoot Constable Fitzpatrick at their family home Was he a lawless thug or a noble Robin Hood a remorseless killer or a crusader against oppression and discrimination Was he even a political revolutionary an Australian republican channelling the spirit of Eureka br br Peter FitzSimons bestselling chronicler of many of the great defining moments and people of this nation s history is the perfect person to tell this most iconic of all Australian stories From Kelly s early days in Beveridge Victoria in the mid s to the i Felons Apprehension Act i which made it possible for anyone to shoot the Kelly gang to Ned s appearance in his now famous armour prompting the shocked and bewildered police to exclaim He is the devil and He is the bunyip FitzSimons brings the history of Ned Kelly and his gang exuberantly to life weighing in on all of the myths legends and controversies generated by this compelling and divisive Irish Australian rebel See more at a target

general thrust in North Africa by Allied forces A panicked Winston Churchill wrote Tobruk seems to be the place to be held to the death without thought of retirement nothing must hamper the capture of Tobruk In the dark heart of World War II when Hitler turned his attentions to conquering North Africa a distracted and far flung Allied force could not give its all to the defence of the key city of Tobruk in Libya So the job was left to the roughest toughest bunch they could muster Tobruk is the story of an incredible battle in excruciating desert heat through nine long months against the might of Adolf Hitler s formidable Afrika Korps This force s defence of Tobruk against the Afrika Korps armoured division is one of the great battles of all time yet rarely talked about Drawing on extensive source material including diaries and letters some never published before this extraordinary book is the definitive account of this remarkable battle While Peter Fitzsimons is a celebrated historian his popularity stems from his fantastic storytelling Tobruk is written in a narrative style putting the reader next to men such as General Leslie Morshead as he decides the fate of his men next to men such as Jack Harris as he stands in the blood of an injured mate While detailed and well researched Tobruk reads like a novel, b The incredible story of Australia s most famous polar explorer and the giants from the heroic age of polar exploration b Douglas Mawson born in and knighted in was Australia s greatest Antarctic explorer This is the incredible account of an expedition he led on December from Hobart to explore the virgin frozen coastline below miles of which had never felt the tread of a human foot After setting up Main Base at Cape Denision and Western Base on Queen Mary Land he headed east on an extraordinary sledging trek with his companions Belgrave Ninnis and Dr Xavier Mertz After five weeks tragedy struck Ninnis was swallowed whole by a snow covered crevasse and Mawson and Mertz realized it was too dangerous to go on Dwindling supplies forced them to kill their dogs to feed the other dogs at first and then themselves Hunger sickness and despair eventually got the better of Ninnis and he succumbed to madness and then to death Mawson found himself all alone miles from safety with next to no food This staggering tale of his survival against all odds also masterfully interweaves the stories of the other giants from the heroic age of polar exploration to bring the jaw dropping events of this bygone era dazzlingly back to life
