Australia's Worst Disasters by Malcolm Brown
Book DescriptionAustralia's history is punctuated by shocking incidents and accidents that have rocked the nation. Here, journalist Malcolm Brown and others examine some of the worst human dramas that we have witnessed in Australia - looking at not only what happened, but often how tragedy could have been avoided. Cases include Cyclone Tracey, the West Gate Bridge Disaster, the Ash Wednesday bushfires, the Thredbo landslide, the demolition of the Royal Canberra Hospital, the 1998 Sydney-Hobart yacht race - and most recently, the Sea King helicopter disaster. These graphic and compelling stories provide unique accounts of what happened, as well as insights into the impact of those events on survivors and the rest of the nation.
