    Chester Wilmot brought the triumphs and tragedies of warfare into the homes of millions. Reginald William Winchester (Chester) Wilmot (1911-1954) was a renowned Australian war correspondent, broadcaster, journalist and writer. From the first triumphant North African battles of Bardia, Tobruk and Derna, to the heartbreaking disaster of the Greek Campaign, to the epic struggle along the famed Kokoda Track to the momentous amphibious invasion at Normandy and the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany, his voice stood above all others during BBC and ABC broadcasts throughout WW2. Following the war he continued reporting and broadcasting and famous author of The Struggle for Europe, about many battles and campaigns he had witnessed firsthand. He was tragically killed in the crash of BOAC Comet over Greece in 1954, returning from Australia where had been covering the Royal Tour. Bestselling authors Neil McDonald and Peter Brune have united to tell the story in the first full biography of this enigmatic figure.
