The first full biography of the rugby legend and World War II hero. 'A great story that is long overdue in the telling.' -Paul Ham. 'Rugby is fortunate to have so many role models of the highest order. Stan Bisset is at the top of the game.' -John Eales former Wallabies captain. 'Stan Bisset like this remarkable story of his life is timeless.' -Patrick Lindsay. 'Stan was a man before his time. His leadership forward thinking and standards were second to none . . . This book is a fascinating and insightful read and I highly recommend it.' -Rod Macqueen AM former Wallabies coach. Stan Bisset was a real hero both in battle on the rugby pitch and in desperate armed combat against the Japanese during the Second World War. As a member of the ill-fated 1939 Wallaby touring team to England he was a rugby legend. In the Middle East and on the Kokoda Track he was one of Australia's most distinguished and heroic combatants. But above all else he personified so many attributes of the Australian soldier: moral and physical courage compassion selflessness independence loyalty resourcefulness devotion and humour. Stan Bisset's remarkable life story is told by former Australian soldier and Afghanistan veteran Andrew James. This is a truly inspiring book that crosses generations.
