WOLFSBERG: ANZACS & AMERICANS by John Hunter Farrell
HISTORY BROUGHT TO LIFE
The acclaimed novelisation of the true events of 1918 as the Great War reaches its horrific crescendo.
Wolfsberg walks the walk - spanning the worst days of the Kaiserschlacht offensive in March 1918 through to the stunning Australian victory at Le Hamel and the pivotal counterattacks to hold the strategic Wolfsberg Heights that dominated the entire sector.
Wolfsberg brings to vivid life the mud, the blood, recon, raids and gas attacks endured by the Aussie Diggers and American Doughboys as they struggle towards victory on the Somme.
In the weeks before they cross the start line at Hamel, they smash the Kaisers Stosstruppen at Sailly le Sec, have the Red Baron drop dead in their laps on the road to Albert and survive the most horrific chemical attack in human history.
Written by the grandson of Lt Col John Farrell awarded the DSO "for the capture of the town of Hamel", compiled from family memoirs, AIF records,Unit histories, and historical sources, Wolfsberg is history packaged as a novel.
Wolfsberg is a searing, high tempo, combat focused, historically correct, page turning Great War tragedy.
You will laugh, you will cry and you will be left dazed...
