Mission 101

Written by Duncan McNab.

In late 1940 a group of five young Australian soldiers set out on a secret mission. 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 research and personal anecodotes, McNab tells the little known and fascinating story of what was Mission 101.
