By: David Campbell

Price: $8.00

Publisher: Australia, Pandanus Books: 2006

Seller ID: 249711

ISBN: 1740761804

Condition: Very Good Condition


Probably written in Darwin in the last years of the conflict, Campbell's story of bombing raids over enemy shipping lanes in the Timor Sea draws vividly on his own experience as a fighter pilot in defence of Australia's northern coastline. In spare, unsentimental prose that brings to life the laconic humour and spirit of Australia's airmen, Campbell tells a story of danger and struggle, of the cruel loss of mates and of the redemptive power of love. Strike is a vivid expression of wartime experience that also stands as a revealing chapter of the life of one of Australia's great lyrical poets. ... View more info
