Chris Masters in conversation with Nick McKenzie
Readings Hawthorn — 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122
Chris Masters has long been one of Australia’s finest investigative journalists, with a Gold Walkley and over 20 years on the staff of ABC TV’s Four Corners. No Front Line is his extraordinary investigation into the war in Afghanistan, undertaken over 10 years. He gives voice to the soldiers, takes us to the centre of some of the fiercest combat Australia has ever experienced, and provides the most intimate examination of what it is like to be a member of this country’s elite fighting forces. But he also asks difficult questions that reveal controversial clouds hanging over our Special Operations mission in Afghanistan.
No Front Line will find a place as one of Australia’s finest books on contemporary soldiering. Masters will talk about it all with another giant of Australian investigative journalism, Nick McKenzie, recipient of multiple Walkley Awards.
