Jerry’s new book “The Japanese Avalanche-The first six months of the War in the Pacific” is now available for free download from this website.
Jerry McBrien grew up in England at a time when World War 2 was recent and familiar history, and many people and the landscape still bore its scars.
In his twenties he settled in Australia, where he worked in strategy and planning roles in the chemical and power industries.
Now retired on the Sunshine Coast, he spends most of his time writing and lecturing on the history of the Second World War, particularly the War in the Pacific, which has been an interest since he arrived in Australia.
His book “The Japanese Avalanche-The first six months of the War in the Pacific” tells this dramatic story to a new audience and celebrates the efforts of those who fought and won the war, from the infantrymen to the joint chiefs of staff.
In his spare time he drives an old sports car around the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and boats in Pumicestone Passage.
