Minimum Donation €15.50

Gun Buster was the pseudonymous author of a series of novels about the British exploits in World War II. His works have been attributed to John Charles Austin and his son, Captain Richard Campion Austin (1912–2001), who was a captain in the Royal Artillery. The review in The Mercury noted: Much has been written about Malta’s war ordeal, but I doubt if anyone has done the job so successfully as ‘Gun Buster’ in his fourth war book, “Grand Barrage.” … I consider [it], one of the best war books I have read.[9]Several Australian newspapers and magazines reprinted large segments of his book Return via Dunkirk and Battle Dress in weekly instalments

His is a book in which discomfort, tragedy and brutality is stepped down, and the spirit of the troop shines through the brighter.” . Book is in Good Condition. Pages still nice and clean.
