Neil McDonald with his new book Valiant for truth : the life of Chester Wilmot, war correspondent (written with Peter Brune)
Valiant for Truth charts Wilmot’s exceptional life as he reported key events of the 20th century. It contains the most complete account to date of the command crisis in New Guinea in 1942 and his extraordinary feud with Australian Commander-in-Chief General Sir Thomas Blamey. Bestselling authors Neil McDonald and Peter Brune unite to tell the story in this, the first full biography of one of the most important correspondents of WWII.
