Comments: Slessor was Australia’s Official War Correspondent in WWII. He was in the UK in 1940, in the Middle East, 1941-1942, and the South West Pacific, 1943-1944. He witnessed the Greek and Crete Campaigns and also the battles in Syria and North Africa including El Alamein. In 1944 he resigned in a cloud of controversy. His detailed and graphic war diaries of Australian military activity give a vivid view of the war.
