    Not sure what rock that Dee fellow lives under but this piece of work on our dear Ned is simply brilliant! It's easy to read, has great insight, and shines a light on the corrupt politicians and police of the day. Thank the Gods I didn't live in colonial times as I'm sure I would have joined the Kelly Gang to right all those wrongs!

        The author claims to be a historian but he has no such academic qualification and this very lightweight paperback recycles the mythology of Ned Kelly that was popular 20 years ago. Modern research and analysis has disproven much of what Webb claims are the facts about Ned Kelly, but he disgracefully ignores all that, and all the modern writers on the topic. Instead he glosses over every single part of the story thats unpalatable and simply repeats tired old whitewash designed to conceal the truth about this triple police murderer and wannabe mass cop-killer. He might have got away with it if the book was published in 1980 but not in 2017. Readers who are interested have access to all the facts on-line and will quickly realise how many important ones are missing, or misrepresented or contradict Webbs claims.
