I also have the hope that the stories of personal experience will make real to you some of the men whose bodies have been for three years part of that human rampart that has kept your homes from desolation, and your daughters from violation, and that you will speed in sending them succor as though the barrier had broken and the bestial Hun were even now, with lust dominant, smashing at your own door.

I first bought this book from a bookseller, in Sydney somne 30 years ago. If there is a superlative for excellent, ultra-excellent has to do.

Capt. Knyvett tells it like it was and every time I read it, I was 'over there with the Australians'. As a veteran of the Viet Nam conflict, I was proud to be able to identify myself as a fellow Digger.
I gave the book to my son, who is no way going to let it go, so I'm glad for the opportunity for the e-book.
