No surrender and no retreat.

When the 9th Division of the AIF withdrew into the Libyan fortress town of Tobruk early in April 1941, a siege 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 siege. It shows the grim work of the soldiers and anti-aircraft gunners on the front line, the ceaseless battle for the harbour, and the bravery of the photographers and journalists who covered the siege.

It illuminates in myriad ways the toughness and the resilience of the soldiers as they battled the heat, the flies, the rats, the boredom and the savagery while doing their bit to win the war.
