An incisive and timely book, the updated edition of Inferno includes the latest findings from the 2009-2010 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission. The book is required reading for all Australians as they debate how best to make sure that the grim history of Black Saturday is never repeated. The narrative is a classic blend of action, horror, survival, love and community.
No stranger to catastrophe, veteran journalist Roger Franklin has covered disasters and debacles in Australia and the U.S. for more than three decades, from the Granville train crash to the 9/11 attacks on New York. Formerly a senior writer at the Herald Sun, he has been a writer and editor for the Sun-Herald, Time magazine, BusinessWeek and the New York Post. He is the author of The Defender: the Story of General Dynamics, a critically acclaimed exposé of waste, fraud and abuse at the Pentagon. Inferno was his first for The Slattery Media Group.
