Gala Night of Storytelling 2016: The Book that Changed Me: Tony Windsor
At the 2016 Gala Night of Storytelling, Tony Windsor shares the story of the book that changed his life: Mila 18, by Leon Uris.
Mila 18 brought home the atrocity of war. It brought home the way in which propaganda is used to create fear within a population.
Tony Windsor was the Independent Member for Tamworth (1991–2001) in the NSW Parliament for 10 years, and the Independent member for New England in the federal parliament for 12 years.
For nearly a third of his political career, Tony Windsor held the balance of power working to demand attention for country people from the major parties.
