I�m doing a book about the WWII Battle for Shaggy Ridge. At this
stage I�m still building up my database of interviews etc and as
it is all on computer I hope to put it all together reasonably quickly.
even commissioned a painting for the front cover showing one of
the Australian attacks on the ridge. I�ll let you know on your web
site when it is closer to publication. I will wait till the manuscipt
is finished before I try to find a publisher.
time I think I have all the details, I find another vet who puts
a new angle on it. I think it will be a book for anyone with a penchant
for history, bravery and human spirit. The battle was literally
fought on a one man front due to the extraordinary terrain and how
the Australians overcame the terrain and the enemy is quite inspiring.
