William Cooper: Gentle Warrior by Barbara Miller
The story of the Australian Aboriginal leader who stood up for his people and for the persecuted Jews of Europe.
ANZACS and Israel by Kelvin Crombie
Speak about the Anzacs to anyone in Australia and you will invariably receive a totally positive response. Conversely, however, speak about Israel to anyone in Australia and you will receive a whole range of responses, from the very positive to the very negative.
This is ironic, for the Anzacs have been one of the major contributors towards the modern day restoration of Israel, during both World Wars, and the destinies of both countries seem to be somehow linked.
Available from the author at the special initial price of $20. From each copy sold through this website $5 is donated to Friends of Israel. Copies available by contacting email@example.com

Kelvin grew up in rural Western Australia, where he developed an interest in the Anzacs as a young boy, as well as developing a keen interest in Israel and the Jewish people. He is not Jewish, nor came from a practising Christian family. He went to Israel in 1979 and in 1981 came to faith in Jesus. He married Lexie, a Dutch nurse in 1984, and they have four daughters.
From 1986 Kelvin worked at Christ Church, an evangelical Anglican ministry located inside Jerusalem's Old City, where he developed an educational and guiding work. His main area of focus was the period, 1798-1917, and as far as the role of Australian soldiers in the Middle East is concerned, until 1942.
Kelvin pioneered the 'In the footsteps of the Light Horse' tours, doing his first tour to Beersheba in 1988, the first of over a hundred thereafter. In 2007 he was one of the main instigators of the re-enactment of the Charge of Beersheba as was the guide for the Light Horse tour. He periodically guided or spoke to Australian diplomatic, military and trade delegations visiting Israel.
He has written five books concerning the history of the period in Israel after 1798, mostly associated with the British and Anzacs, and has co-produced several documentaries on the same subject. His main work on the Anzacs is entitled 'Anzacs, Empires and Israel's Restoration 1798-1948.'
He is currently back in WA after serving some 24 years in Israel.
Behind the Fence by Danny Morris
“You will never read a more personal, moving, direct, compassionate account of war in the Middle East.
Australian/Israeli soldier, 22 year-old kibbutznik Danny Morris, is wounded in battle during the savage 2006 campaign against the entrenched Hezbollah.
What starts for a platoon of best friends as a one-day cross-border skirmish escalates for Morris into a fight for his country, his life, and ultimately his battle with himself to make sense of the horror he and his friends survived when so many others did not.
Morris sets down one soldier’s actions, thoughts, feelings, fears and fearlessness. Simple. Forthright. And with searing honesty, no heroics, no hyperbole. Just an Israeli kid’s eternity: a few days war in Lebanon.”
