Summary
The power to love, the power to hate, the power to destroy human existence. It is a deadly cocktail. During the darkest days of the Cold War, in the remote wilderness of a South Australian desert, the future of an infant nation is being decided, without its people's knowledge. A British airbase in the middle of nowhere; an atomic weapons testing ground; an army of raw youth led by powerful, ambitious men, a cocktail for disaster. Such is Maralinga in the spring of 1956. Maralinga is a story of British Lieutenant Daniel Gardiner, who accepts a twelve-month posting to the wilds of South Australia on a promise of rapid promotion; Harold Dartleigh, Deputy Director of MI-6 and his undercover operative Gideon Melbray; Australian Army Colonel Nick Stratton and the enigmatic Petraeus Mitchell, bushman and anthropologist. They all find themselves in a violent and unforgiving landscape, infected with the unique madness and excitement that only nuclear testing creates. Maralinga is also a story of love; a love so strong that it draws the adventurous young English journalist Elizabeth Hoffman halfway around the world in search of the truth. And Maralinga is a story of heartbreak; heartbreak brought to the innocent First Australians who had walked their land unhindered for 40,000 years. Maralinga, a desolate place where history demands an emerging nation choose between hell and reason
