Author Talk: John Fahey

Australia’s First Spies

In writing Australia’s First Spies, John Fahey combed Australian government archives with the expert eye of a former intelligence officer to uncover our secret wartime past from 1901–45. From the leaks that nearly got Australia expelled from intelligence networks to international diplomatic rumbles, and the brave operations undertaken by under-trained operatives, Fahey’s book is a great insight into Australian history and its political underbelly.
