"Conqueror's Road...could be perused at any time with admiration: it is unsparingly detailed and unflaggingly elegant...The word 'classic' is overused today but Conqueror's Road is assuredly one." The Book Bulletin
"There really can be no substitute for great writing and Osmar White, one of Australia's finest war correspondents, really did write like an angel...[an] extraordinary account." Sydney Morning Herald
"Osmar White is widely regarded as one of the finest Australian war correspondents ever, and on reading Conqueror's Road it is not hard to see why...The author's style is crisp and his insight telling." Australian Defence Magazine
"Conqueror's Road...is a classic of its kind and its release in paperback is timely today. White was able to give his reportage depth ad philosophical interest." The Australian, Higher Education Supplement
This highly acclaimed and beautifully written book by one of Australia's finest chroniclers of the Second World War tells the devastating story of war from the inside. Based largely on the author's own war diary and the articles he wrote as a war correspondent, this deeply personal account is unparalleled amongst the vast literature on World War Two. Chosen as one of the top 100 pieces of journalism in the twentieth century, Conquerors' Road remains as fresh and more timely than ever.
