    Fitzsimons has tackled some of Australia’s most mythologised historical moments (Eureka, Gallipoli, Kokoda) and also some of our country’s most legendary historical figures (Charles Kingsford-Smith, Nancy Wake, Douglas Mawson) in his many books. Now he takes on both myth and legend in a thoroughly researched, lengthy and lively volume. Early on, he talks about bringing ‘the story part of this history alive’, and he certainly does that, with a great deal of narrative flair. He applies this flair to the small details of the expedition as well as to the big questions such as the explorers’ motivations, and ultimately the debate about ‘who really was most to blame for the debacle’. A great re-examination.
