$295.00

 

Colleen McCullough (The Thorn Birds). The first non-fiction work from the author of The Thorn Birds. A portrait of an extraordinary Australian. Roden Cutler, V.C. is the story of Sir Roden Cutler, war hero, diplomat and former Governor of New South Wales. Born in 1916 and educated at Sydney University, he joined the AIF in 1940, serving in Syria and Lebanon. In Syria his courage in capturing enemy positions won him a Victoria Cross and, in another battle, a machine gun injury led to a leg being amputated. After the war he served as a diplomat in Ceylon, Egypt, Pakistan, New York and the Netherlands. He was Australian delegate to the United Nationals General Assembly in 1963 and 1964. In 1966 he returned to Australia to become Governor of New South Wales, a position he held until 1981. Sir Roden Cutler is a widely respected — and widely loved — figure whose life encompasses major moments in Australian and international history.
