Curtin's Cowboys Australia's Secret Bush Commandos


1986, First edition. Binding fine, with no owner inscriptions, in like fine dust jacket which is now protected by a clear protective sleeve. "They called them 'Curtin's Cowboys", 'an organised bunch of bushrangers', 'the most notoriously undisciplined unit in the Australian Army'. The called them the 'Nackeroos'. They were the 500-man North Australia Observer Unit. The hitherto-untold history of this unit reads like a Boys Own adventure which reveals as much about panic in Australia in 1942 as it does about the pioneering spirit and remarkable endurance of a curious mixture of young hand-picked volunteers". Maps; diagrams; illustrations. 194 pp.
