Stealth Raiders - a distinctly Australian phenomenon?

Description
Lucas Jordan talks with Scott Bevan about the untold story of a few daring men who terrorized German soldiers in World War 1. In his book Stealth Raiders: a few daring men in 1918 Lucas Jordan argues that bush skills, and the bush ethos central to Australian civil society – with its emphasis on resourcefulness and initiative – made stealth raids a distinctively Australian phenomenon. Who were the Australian infantrymen who made audacious, unauthorised stealth attacks of on the German front line in 1918? What made Australian soldiers take on this independent and personal type of warfare? Using their firsthand accounts, as well as official archives and private records, Lucas Jordan pieced their stories together. A History Illuminated 2019 session. Presented by Lake Mac Libraries in partnership with Hunter Writers Centre. Book sales provided by Dymocks, Charlestown.
