AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'On 1 January 1915, ramifications from the First World War, raging half a world away, were felt in Broken Hill, Australia, when in a guerrilla-style military operation, four citizens were killed and seven wounded.

It was the annual picnic day in Broken Hill and a thousand citizens were dressed for fun when the only enemy attack to occur on Australian soil during World War I took them by surprise. Nicholas Shakespeare has turned this little known piece of Australian history into a story for our time.' (Random House Australia)
