Anzac Memories: Living With The Legend, Alistair Thomson
5 Alistair Thomson Anzac Memories: Living With The Legend
Oxford University Press 236134 Melbourne 1995 0195537432 / 9780195537437 Softcover Very Good Condition The Anzac (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) legend rests upon the assumption that Australia came of age as a nation when the Anzacs landed on Gallipoli on April 25, 1915 during the First World War. This legend is integral to the Australian sense of nationhood and national character. In this highly original book, Alistair Thompson explores both the creation of the legend, and, most crucially, its effect upon those who have lived in its shadow--the survivors of the great war. Looking at the legend's changing significance for Australian politics and society, the author draws on personal interviews with surviving war veterans, as well as the official histories of Charles Bean, and the depiction of Anzacs in nineties novels and movies. 280 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Australian::Australian History; Australia; Military & Warfare; Military. ISBN: 0195537432. ISBN/EAN: 9780195537437.

Cassell 239536 Great Britain 1998 Reprint 0304350540 / 9780304350544 Softcover Very Good Condition Victory at all costs--that was the goal of the armies whose riveting stories unfold here. Classic examples of battlefield successes achieved by poorly armed and positioned forces reveal how bravery, determination, and sheer willpower "can win the day. Go into the valleys of death at Balaclava in the 1800s, where the Light Brigade was destroyed--but the threat to Britain's supply lines stanched; to Gettysburg, where the persistence of just a few men, for just a few extra minutes, made all the difference; to Arras, where the Allies succeeded in smashing through Rommel's troops; and to 8 other incredible battles.

Seize and Hold: Master Strokes on the Battlefield [Cassell Military Paperbacks], Bryan Perrett
10 Bryan Perrett Seize and Hold: Master Strokes on the Battlefield [Cassell Military Paperbacks]
Cassell 239534 Great Britain 1999 Reprint 0304351709 / 9780304351701 Softcover Very Good Condition The twentieth-century advent of the motorised battlegroup transformed what used to be a comparatively rare event - the coup de main - into an essential element of attack. Speed, surprise and firepower favour the small unit able to take the initiative against an unprepared enemy, and that is the central theme of this book: eleven such actions, ranging from central Europe in 1916, through the Second World War to Vietnam in 1965, capturing the thrill of the moment when the small motorised force breaks through enemy defences to reach its improbable target. This is aggressive warfare at its sharpest, and makes for compulsive reading. 224 pages. Tanning to pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Military; Military & Warfare; ISBN: 0304351709. ISBN/EAN: 9780304351701. Inventory No: 239534. Paperback

Allen & Unwin 242810 Australia 2012 First Edition 1741759714 / 9781741759716 Hardcover Good Condition Good Chris Masters turns his penetrating gaze on the young men and women who make up the Australian Army. Having been taken into their ranks in a way rarely afforded an outsider, he gives heart and soul to the contemporary digger: how they are selected, how they are led, and how they are transformed from civilians to disciplined professional soldiers.
