A new book about the nuclear testing at Maralinga has recently been published. (Yes, yet another!)
It is titled "Atomic Thunder" by Elizabeth Tynan and available from Newsouth Books.
I learned of the book when Phillip Adams interviewed the author on Late Night Live.

I have yet to read this book but have ordered a copy and will review it on this forum in due course.

Incidentally, this month of September is 60 years from the first atomic test at Maralinga.
Cheers

Hi Allan

Thanks for the thumbs up. Not sure how much you paid for the book, but you can get them on eBay for $30.95 including postage.


Let us know what you think about it before I order my copy.



Cheers

Allan,

Just came across this link to an Australian Geographic article. Worth a look for those that haven't had the privilege of going there.

Regards

Thanks John, that AG article added to my fascination of Maralinga which lies somewhere between morbid and euphoric.

Cheers

My wifes Aunt Evelyn [still alive and kicking though a bit deaf nowadays] actually worked at Maralinga as a typist in the offices during the 'tests'.
