Sinopse

Contains 9 maps and 30 photo illustrations The Australian Corps gained a towering reputation as a fighting force during the First World War; firm in defence and nigh-on unstoppable in attack. Their men were all volunteers who had travelled from the furthest reaches of the Empire to serve in Europe; following on from the badly managed campaign at Gallipoli the Australians formed a heterogeneous corps on the Western Front in 1916. Their record in the fighting during 1916 and 1917; including the capture of Bullecourt, the battles of Passchendaele and Messines Ridge were noteworthy in themselves. However their performance in 1918 was beyond all praise; foremost in blunting the German Spring offensives and then hurling themselves on the retreating Germans with savage abandon as the spearhead of the entire British Army. It is only fitting that the author of this story of Australian Glory is Lieutenant-General Sir John Monash, their hugely successful commander. He writes with passion, verve and highlights the performance of his men even down to the performance of individual officers and soldiers with great pride. A fantastic book celebrating the victories and sacrifices of the Australian soldiers on the Western Front in the last year of World War One.
