Gordon Smith

Author Gordon Smithabout this book: The Ministry Communications Unit is set in wartime Australia

The Australian Government and Military became concerned with the possibility of the civilian population abandoning the coastal cities of Brisbane, Rockhampton, and Townsville and the coastal cities of New South Wales.

It was suggested that a specialist public relations could be used to create reassurance movies and newspaper articles showing the civilian population the defences that were in place should be established and being a civilian group, reporting to the head of the defence ministry and could not be hindered by the military in their tasks.

This is a story showing the development of the unit, and the interaction between the various members of the unit. Young men and young women, with developing passion for each other and then, their horror at the sinking of a hospital ship shortly after their joy of an intimate moment.

It is not a war story, but, rather a story that takes place during the war and it highlights their adventures and surprising romances during as well as after the war.

• B.H. Taylor wrote on Amazon: "From a first glance I thought that it has been just historical fiction, but the story has moments where it was also about adventure, romance, glory and also personal sacrifice. The Ministry Communications unit, tells the tale of how the unit developed along with the interactions of people causing interest and romances to begin. But nothing in the path of love can run smoothly and as the young men and women become romantically involved, they then become shocked by the horrific hospital boat sinking."

• Heidi rated it: "From a first glance I thought that it has been just historical fiction, but the story has moments where it was also about adventure, romance, glory and also personal sacrifice. The Ministry Communications unit, tells the tale of how the unit developed along with the interactions of people causing interest and romances to begin. But nothing in the path of love can run smoothly and as the young men and women become romantically involved, they then become shocked by the horrific hospital boat sinking. I don't want to say much more and spoil it for others, but it is definitely worth a read."

• And finally well respected reviewer Gray Harp said: "Gordon's writing style remains assertive, accurate, and in the language and style of the time and characters, a factor that continues to make his books unique in their effect on the reader. Australia has now found a spokesman and a fine one at that."
