Barney Greatrex: The Story of an Australian Hero

Posted on: Wed 27 Sep 2017

For 70 years, World War II Veteran Barney Greatrex never spoke about his combat experiences, until now!

Acclaimed best selling author, Michael Vietch, has released his new book telling the remarkable story of Barney Greatrex who is 97 years old. 

We was just an ordinary man in the 1930’s and joined the air force as thousands did, but the rest of his story was extraordinary.

Michael Vietch joins Breakfast’s Tom and Morgan to share the story.
