Dr Bruce Gaunsen is an active historian, writer and speaker who has expertise in many historical periods and particularly about Australia in World War 1. This session focuses on a German spy network that was active in all our ports and state capitals prior to the outbreak of World War 1. Their professional work was never detected , and is only emerging now because their reports were long ago placed in the German archives. What was their specific mission, who were they, and what became of them once the war began?
