'Major General John Joseph Murray fought in the AIF in both the First and Second World Wars. He won the Military Cross as a company commander during the disastrous Battle of Fromelles, and in the Second World War he commanded the Australian 20th Brigade during the siege of Tobruk ... [He wrote of his war experiences in I Confess] a carefully crafted analysis of leadership under pressure, a very personal reflection on its stresses, its tragedies and its lifelong reward.' (Trove record)
