One of Australia's well-known chroniclers of the Second World War tells the devastating story of war from the insider's perspective. Based largely on Osmar White's own war diary and the articles he wrote as a war correspondent, this deeply personal account stands out among the vast literature on World War II. Selected among the best 100 articles in Australian journalism of the twentieth century, White's eloquent record of the climactic events in the final days of the Third Reich remains as fresh and timely as ever.

About the Author
Osmar White is regarded as one of Australia� finest war correspondents. His account of the New Guinea campaign in 1942 and 1943, Green Armour, is a classic. In late 1944, Sir Keith Murdoch sent White to Europe for the Herald & Weekly Times group. He was attached to the US Third Army, under General George Patton, and it was this assignment that gave birth to Conqueror� Road.
