When the 9th Division of the AIF withdrew into the Libyan fortress town of tobruk early in April 1941, a seige began that was to make its mark on the course of WWII and the popular memory of a nation. tobruk 1941 reveals in startling and poignant detail the facts of day-to-day life during the seige.
