Product description

Review

"A thorough, highly-readable distillation of the overlooked Battle of Tobruk." Author: The Age

"Gripping stuff." Author: The Sydney Morning Herald

"FitzSimons presents the human face of those involved in the long, drawn out defence of Tobruk. An interesting and informative read." Author: aussiereviews.com

"Tobruk comes to life in true FitzSimons style, evoking feelings and emotions of that time as well as the facts." Author: Brisbane News

"Humphrey Bower succeeds expertly. His Australian accent and his comfort with the informal dialogue capture the tone of the narrative, and his German is completely convincing. It is difficult to imagine a narrator more ideally suited to a text." Author: AudioFile Magazine --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
