Synopsis

In John Bede Cusack's fictionalised military memoir 'They Hosed Them Out', fact and fiction intersect to tell the powerful story of one man's experience as an air gunner during the Second World War. Cusack transcends the limitations of non-fiction and traditional war literature to evoke not only the well-documented horrors of war but also the adventure. Written with a profound mixture of bitterness and cynicism, humour and camaraderie, Cusack's sardonic Australian humour offers a unique and personal story of an Australian underdog caught up in a world war. First published in the 1960s, now includes never published before chapters, a memoir by the author's daughter, and an introduction by war historian Robert Brokenmouth.
