    I Confess
    I Confess
    A Memoir of the Siege of Tobruk
    I Confess is an intimate portrayal of command in the crucible of war. But Major General John Joseph Murray's portrait of wartime leadership is not the stuff of military textbooks and his war is no set - piece battle. Murray commanded the Australian 20th Brigade during the siege of Tobruk, that grinding, tortuous desert defence that saw the German forces label his men 'rats', a badge they have worn since with pride and honour. Murray's account, as he explains in the humorous, deprecating whimsy that characterises his memoir, is not a story of raging battles and hardfought actions, but of the essence of command. This is a portrait of the relationship Murray forges with his men through the long days of the siege against a relentless enemy and as supplies dwindle, tempers fray and exhaustion threatens. Written in April 1945 as the war entered its final phase, I Confess is a carefully crafted analysis of leadership under pressure, a very personal reflection on its stresses, its tragedies and its lifelong rewards.
