            A fascinating work of narrative non-fiction, this is story of spies, volcanoes, conflict and war, set against the romantic, dramatic and ultimately tragic backdrop of Rabaul in WWII. It's hard to imagine this is part of our past, but in 1942, an eleven year-old Australian boy, Ri...chard Manson, and his family, holding hands on either side of him, were shot by the Japanese for suspected spying, in Rabaul in Papua New Guinea. Acclaimed 4th Estate author and award-winning science journalist Ian Townsend has uncovered a fascinating story of WWII, little known to most Australians. Centring on the 'hotspot' (in every sense) that was Rabaul in WWII, his account is an intriguing narrative, weaving together Australian history, Australian lives, military conflict and science - with volcanology being the peculiar science which drew the Americans, Japanese and Australians together in conflict in the Pacific in the 1040s.

            In the early 1930s, Nancy Wake was a young woman enjoying a bohemian life in Paris. By the end of the Second World War, she was the Gestapo's most wanted person. As a naive, young journalist, Nancy Wake witnessed a horrific scene of Nazi violence in a Viennese street. From that m...oment, she declared that she would do everything in her power to rid Europe of the Nazis. What began as a courier job here and there became a highly successful escape network for Allied soldiers, perfectly camouflaged by Nancy's high-society life in Marseille. Her network was soon so successful - and so notorious - that she was forced to flee France to escape the Gestapo, who had dubbed her 'the white mouse' for her knack of slipping through its traps. But Nancy was a passionate enemy of the Nazis and refused to stay away. Supplying weapons and training members of a powerful underground fighting force, organising Allied parachute drops, cycling four hundred kilometres across a mountain range to find a new transmitting radio - nothing seemed too difficult in her fight against the Nazis. Peter FitzSimons reveals Nancy Wake's compelling story, a tale of an ordinary woman doing extraordinary things.
