Summary
In early 1941 Australian soldiers stormed Italy's stronghold on the Libyan coast and took control of the port city of Tobruk. Heavily outnumbered, yet resourceful and defiant, the Australians then defended the garrison against sustained attack by German forces. For five months the 'Rats of Tobruk' held on, dealing a major blow to the Axis powers? North African campaign. Tobruk 1941 is the pioneering ABC reporter Chester Wilmot's on-the-ground account of the siege, a landmark work of war writing. This edition comes with a new introduction by the historian Peter Cochrane - Publisher
