"Diggers and Greeks is the long overdue account of Australia's 'second Gallipoli',
told from the Australian and Greek perspectives for the first time. Dr Maria Hill shines
a light on the relationships between Australian soldiers and Greek citizens as they faced the enemy together, forging a bond under the most extraordinary of
circumstances and saved over one thousand Australian lives as a result.

I congratulate Dr Maria Hill on her achievement in highlighting the importance
that the Greek and Cretan campaigns play in Australia's national history,
and I hope that all Australians take the opportunity to read the book and learn
about this important part of our nation's history." - Steve Georganas
