Gus Officer. Six O'Clock Diamond: The Story of a Desert Harrasser. Northcote: Woolhouse Press, 2008. The memoir of a Second World War RAAF Kittyhawk pilot, who in 1942 was shot down over the Western Desert and spent the rest of the war as a POW.

Roland Perry. The Australian Light Horse: The Magnificent Australian Force and its Decisive Victories in Arabia in World War I. Sydney: Hachette Australia, 2009. A bit of a family connection here, as a couple of great-great-uncles were in the Light Horse. The subtitle gives me pause, however; but one probably shouldn't expect any better from the author of Monash: The Outsider Who Won a War.
