AbstractHistoryArchive Description

''Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.'

Winston Churchill, 11th March 1941

'Give Us the Tools is a mystery novel based on actual events.

'During the Second World War Anne Preston is employed by the Aircraft Metrology Laboratory at Fishermen's Bend, Melbourne. Here she becomes embroiled in the espionage and intrigue which successfully sabotages the manufacture of Beaufort Bombers.

'Born in 1924 when fascism, communism and democracy started on the collision course that led to the war, she confronts opposing beliefs and ideals and asks questions rarely contemplated by young Australians of that era.

'A few months before the Atom Bomb ends the war with tools which now have the power to 'finish the world', the Commonwealth Police hold an enquiry into the sabotage.' (Publication summary)
