The Toughest Mission

Chris Masters talks about No Front Line

In an extraordinary investigation undertaken over 10 years, investigative journalist Chris Masters opens up the heart of Australia's Special Forces and their war in Afghanistan.

He gives voice to the soldiers, he takes us to the centre of some of the fiercest combat Australia has

ever experienced and provides the most intimate examination of what it is like to be a member of this country's elite fighting forces.

He also asks difficult questions that reveal controversial clouds hanging over our Special Operations mission in Afghanistan.

“What has been discovered and laid before you is as tough an investigation mission as I’ve ever undertaken...In journalism speak, I worked both inside and outside the tent.” Chris Masters

Masterfully told, No Front Line will find a place as one of Australia's finest books on contemporary soldiering.

CHRIS MASTERS won Australia’s most prestigious award in journalism, the Gold Walkley for his Four Corners report on the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior. His reports The Big League and The Moonlight State both led to royal commissions that helped transform the nation. The author of the bestselling Jonestown (2006), his previous book is the critically acclaimed Uncommon Soldier.
