Struan's War - Battlegrounds, recreation and Sightseeing in North Africa 1941-1944 in the Photographs and Diaries of New Zealand Division Gunner Struan MacGibbon

Author(s): Edited by John MacGibbon

NZ & World War II | Secondhand

The elite Long Range Desert Group operated behind enemy lines and Frank Jopling was with them from the first sortie. His diary is the most comprehensive published account of the daily activities of these military swashbucklers who played a vital part in the Eight Army's victory over Axis forces in North Africa during World War II. Trooper Jopling himself became something of a wartime celebrity after his diary was discovered. Extracts appeared in British media, he was the cover story in Everybody's magazine and his personal readings from the diaries were broadcast in his home country, New Zealand. Auckland writer Brendan O'Carroll has previously published The Kiwi Scorpions, a history of New Zealanders' involvement in the Long Range Desert Group.
