Sydney: Angus and Robetson, Ltd, 1944. FIRST EDITION. EX-library. Stamps and pocket. Moderate rubbing and wear to board edges. Tiny nibbles to top edges of pp 99 - 114. 12 Maps, 32 black and white photographs including frontispiece aerial view of Tobruk. Folded map laid-in to rear of book. Worn gilt lettering to spine of dark green cloth-covered boards. 8.5 x 5.5". 348 pp with epilogue, appendices and index. Tight binding. "The story of the fighting at and around Tobruk during 1941. It is not a personal story, nor is it a full military history. It is an attempt to record what one man was able to learn of what took place. It deals not only with events but with the men responsible for them - how they lived as well as how they fought," (preface). VERY GOOD MINUS.
