A Tobruk Rat's Tale
by Zac Isaksson

Available for $33 AUD (includes GST) plus $10 AUD for postage and handling. Please contact us for purchase or overseas delivery.


This tale by one of those gallant Australians dubbed Rats of Tobruk by Nazi German propagandists includes a riveting account of Zak Isaksson's involvement as a member of the 2/48th battalion at Tobruk and El Alamein. It goes on to recount details of the author's participation in the New Guinea campaign and as such makes an enormous contribution to the history of Australian involvement in the Second World War.  But the book is much more than a war memoire. It is a disarmingly frank but fascinating look back through a colourful and eventful life lived to the full. Zak keeps his readers absorbed as he recounts the many endeavours in which he has been involved and of the intriguing characters he met along the way.

It is a thumpingly good tale told by an extraordinarily talented Australian

HMAS Brisbane was the third and last American built guided missile destroyer acquired by Australia in the mid 1960's.  The warship has the unique distinction of being the only Australian destroyer to have been deployed on active service to two major conflicts during the second half of the twentieth century.  She was assigned for active serice in the Vietnam War in 1969 and again in 1971.  Twenty years later Brisbane was the only Australian destroyer sent to the Persian Gulf during the 1990/1991 Gulf Crisis and Gulf War.
