AACS - The Battle of Bardia


Description:


On the morning of 3 January 1941, Australians of the 6th Division led an assault against the Italian colonial fortress-village of Bardia in Libya. The ensuing battle was the first battle of the Second World War planned and fought predominantly by Australians.

Remarkably the fortress fell to the attackers in a little over two days after the attack began, in a victory heralded at the time in Australia as one of the nation's greatest military achievements. Subsequent battles may have overshadowed it, however, this book attempts to bring it back into the spotlight.

Soft cover, 166 pages.
