Publisher Description

"I fancy the Italians have bitten off more than they can chew..."

In late 1940 a group of five young Australian soldiers set out on a secret mission: one of the second world war's most daring operations.

Leading a small force of Ethiopian freedom fighters on an epic trek across the harsh African bush from the Sudan, the small incursion force entered Italian-occupied Ethiopia and began waging a guerilla war against the 250,000-strong Italian army. One of these men, Ken Burke, was Duncan McNab's uncle.

Using a combination of fascinating research and personal anecodotes, McNab tells the little known story of Mission 101, and how a small group of Australians helped free a nation.
