Bill Oakes & The 2/2 MG Battalion Association

This book presents a pictorial record of six years at war with the 2/2nd Australian Machine Gun Battalion, which formed part of the ninth Australian Division during the Second World War. It recalls in graphic detail the fighting at Alamein, and particularly the desperate struggle before the final battle was won, as well as the campaigns in New Guinea and Borneo. More than 400 photographs, most from the battalions own archives, illustrate the story. Hard cover, 305 pages.
