About this product
- DescriptionIn late 1940 a group of five young Australian soldiers set out on a secret mission: one of the second world war's most daring operations. Leading a small force of Ethiopian freedom fighters on an epic trek across the harsh African bush from the Sudan, the small incursion force entered Italian-occupied Ethiopia and began waging a guerilla war against the 250,000-strong Italian army. One of these men, Ken Burke, was Duncan McNab's uncle. Using a combination of fascinating research and personal anecodotes, McNab tells the little-kwn story of Mission 101, and how a small group of Australians helped free a nation.
- Author BiographyDuncan McNab is the author of The Usual Suspect - The Life of Abe Saffron and The Dodger - Inside the world of Roger Rogerson.

well worth reading,showing fact is indeed stranger than fiction
as i am interested in australian military history i bought this book to see just what this sofar unknown piece of history was about. the story is as usual with some of our history really amazing. to see what these small group of our soldiers did is fascinating. their part in this campaign was totally unknown to me. to see how much the then emporer thought of their part in freeing his country. this book should be read by all persons interested in our history because it shows just how five men can make such a difference.
