Release of new book ‘Robbie to Dorie’

For those of you following this blog, apologies for not posting for a while. I was finalising my latest book, a military biography of my grandfather, Lt Col John Charles Robertson (‘Robbie’) who was killed near Bakri, Malaya (now Malaysia) on 18 January 1942 on the first day of his (2/29th Australian) Battalion’s encounter with a Battalion of the Japanese Imperial Guards.

The book is mostly based on a series of over 100 personal letters written by Lt Col Robertson to his wife Dorie, from 1940 until 16 January 1942, and includes additional biographical and contextual information. The book is available through Australian Scholarly Publishing at
