"'Jimmy Tonkin versus The Army' is the true story of Jimmy Tonkin's life and strife as he inevitably fought to become an entertainer rather than a soldier.
Only a few words have been added here and there to 'funny' it up a bit, and a few names have been deliberately deleted to protect the innocent - in this case, the 'innocent author'.
Some of the material that Jimmy Tonkin wrote to entertain the troops was unfortunately lost when he met with his near-fatal accident at Ranken River, Northern Territory, but most of it, both humorous and serious, is included in this volume."
