'This true and gloriously inspiring story pays tribute to the exploits of two Australian mines-disposal officers - the late Commander John Stewart Mould, GC, GM, RANVR, and Lieut. Hugh Randal Syme, GC, GM and Bar, RANVR - during World War II.
Simply but vividly, Ivan Southall tells an epic of hard-bitten Australian heroism that must make all of us thrill with pride.
The book is illustrated with splendid on-the-spot photographs.'
