Described as an illustrated notebook of the life of Australians in the Middle Eastern theatre of WWII. There is not only the descriptions of the battles, retreats and campaigns; there is a treasure trove of contributions from the men of the A.I.F.: cartoons, art, stories, jokes and photographs.  Some of the ‘yarns’ included are ‘Furphy-Flushers’ Of Tobruk (regular newsheets to scotch the ‘furphies’ that would do the rounds with amazing speed); There’s Always An American; Ernie Was A Cook; A Visit To A Kibbutz; and a comic poem entitled Hitler in London (With apologies to A.A. Milne). With numerous colour plates and black and white sketches.
