The Warramunga's War by Greg Kater is a gripping tale of war that features political intrigue, espionage at its best, and a friendship that develops in unusual circumstances. In a story set against the backdrop of WWII, we encounter two compelling characters: Jamie Munro, a young Australian officer, and the half-Warramunga aboriginal, Jack O'Brien. Jamie gets wounded in the war and Jack rescues him. They are conscripted by MI6 and embark on an adventure that will involve dealing terrible blows to the enemy, and Jack getting involved in an intense romantic relationship with a French-Syrian girl he meets in Cairo. But there is more to this narrative. The story is balanced and deftly handled. The historical setting is well explored and readers will feel as though they are revisiting history, thanks to the author's ability to evoke a historical event that has been part of the journey of many nations. One gets the impression that Greg Kater must have put a lot of research into this novel, because of its resounding realism and relevant historical details. The Warramunga's War is an utterly enjoyable read.
