This is a valuable book—and a limited number of books are valuable in this way.
Gerard Windsor, The Saturday Age
Cantwell never fails to convey a sense of the heroic in his soldiers. His pride in the troops is unwavering.
Portia Lindsay, The Weekend Australian
This well-written, highly readable account...is a chronicle of Australia's recent involvement in world conflicts and how our soldiers suffered...
Michael Roser, Chronicle
A gripping and captivating account brimming with stories covering the full range of emotions from excitement to anger to elation, to despair and to love. Cantwell pulls no punches in revealing his inner thoughts and fears and in describing his many trials and tribulations.
