It's a universal account of greed, ambition, and the power of the political machine that crushes anyone who gets in the way. In much the same way that Bruce Beresford's award-winning feature film Breaker Morant captured the popular imagination, Shoot Straight, You Bastards! is an explosive listen - as controversial an event today as it was 100 years ago. Too many people have tried to put a halt to the 'wheel of history' by insisting that all has now been revealed and theirs is the definitive word. But there's always more...always, as this book will reveal.This revised edition contains the essay 'The Morant Affair: Murder or Justice', read by Peter Byrne.More

A great mix of fact, fiction, history, re-enactment and good old fashion story telling.
The Breaker of course. I think we all have a little of the Breaking in all of us.
Passes the test.
This book takes hours to listen to. You need to stretch it over a week.
I wanted Harry Morant to be more English. Like Edward Woodward in the movie 'Breaker Morant'. He sounded like an Australian to me.
