Warrior of Kokoda: A Biography of Brigadier Arnold Potts, Bill Edgar
2 Bill Edgar Warrior of Kokoda: A Biography of Brigadier Arnold Potts
Allen & Unwin 239528 Australia 2000 1864489081 / 9781864489088 Softcover Very Good Condition Warrior of Kokoda is the story of Brigadier Arnold Potts, a country farmer from Western Australia who led the Australian 21st Infantry Brigade on the Kokoda Track in 1942. He inspired Maroubra Force, outnumbered and outgunned, to bring the Japanese to a standstill on the ridges overlooking Port Moresby in a valiant fighting withdrawal. To this day, some regard him as 'the man who saved Australia'. However, instead of receiving the accolades of his commanders and the thanks of the nation, Potts was removed from his command shortly afterwards and sent to Darwin to ponder his fate. Many of the veterans of the Kokoda campaign regard this episode as a disgrace and an attempt to cover up the inadequacies of the Allied High Command. Others do not agree and believe that Potts was merely transferred, for quite legitimate military reasons. The controversy remains. Warrior of Kokoda describes the action on the Kokoda Track and Brigadier Potts's intimate involvement in it. It also reveals the behind-the-scenes manoeuvring between Prime Minister John Curtin, General Douglas MacArthur, and General Sir Thomas Blamey. Chicanery and heroism went hand in hand during those dark days. 318 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Military; Military & Warfare; Australian::Australian War.

ANZAC To Amiens - A Shorter History Of The Australian Fighting Services In The First World War, C.E.W. Bean
3 C.E.W. Bean ANZAC To Amiens - A Shorter History Of The Australian Fighting Services In The First World War
Australian War Memorial 236430 Canberra 1952 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket The First World War was the blooding of the young Australian nation. Five years after Australia's overwhelming response to Britain's declaration of war, nearly a fifth of the 330,000 Australians who served overseas lay dead. Charles Bean witnessed it all. Appointed official war correspondent with the Australian Imperial Force in 1914, he spent the entire war in Europe at the cutting edge of the military machine. Anzac to Amiens is Bean's remarkable condensation of the twelve-volume official history of Australia's involvement in the Great War. It describes with great clarity and compassion the strategies, the tactical strikes, the shellings and the sacrifices of that terrible and drawn-out conflict. An acknowledged classic of military history, Anzac to Amiens is compelling and compulsory reading for every Australian interested in the nation's bloody coming of age. 567 pages. Light foxing to endpapers. Previous owners name to top of title page. With black and white photographs and drawings. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

A&U 236709 Australia 2011 1742375952 / 9781742375953 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Australia's diggers didn't go 'over the top' for King and Country, they did it for their mates and their battalion - extraordinary deeds performed by ordinary men.Henry George Hartnett, known as 'Harry', joined the Australian Imperial Force on 13 September 1915 at the age of 23. He saw action on the Western Front at Fromelles and on the Somme, receiving his first 'Blighty', a wound so serious he was sent back to Britain for treatment, in the Battle of Pozieres. Upon his recovery, he returned to 'tour' the front with his battalion - an endless cycle of fighting interspersed with brief rest periods behind the lines.In this book Harry recalls the battles, the long marches, and the many amusing events that provided escape from the horrors of the battlefront. His moving descriptions give the reader insight into the unshakeable bonds forged between men trapped in situations they could never have imagined.Over the Top takes the reader on an eye-opening tour of life in and behind the trenches on the Western Front. Harry's book, which has never before been published, is a magnificent gift to Australia. 326 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Gallipoli - The Fatal Shore, Harvey Broadbent
9 Harvey Broadbent Gallipoli - The Fatal Shore
Viking 228718 Australia 2005 0670040851 / 9780670040858 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine This book by Harvey Broadbent, a leading authority on the Gallipoli campaign and producer of the acclaimed ABC documentary Gallipoli: The Fatal Shore, seeks to convey the story of Gallipoli to Australians of all ages. On 25 April, 1915, Allied troops stormed the cliffs of Gallipoli. Twenty-eight thousand Australians were killed and wounded in the bloody, eight-month campaign. The raging battles of the Landing, the desperate assault on Lone Pine, the gallant but futile charge at the Nek, are all engraved on the national psyche. Gallipoli is now regarded as a defining episode in Australian history. It is an extraordinary story of determination and courage, as the intrepid and resourceful Anzacs displayed the spirit that was to distinguish them on the Western Front as the Empire's most formidable offensive troops. 312 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Australian::Australian War; Military & Warfare; ISBN: 0670040851.

Anzac's Long Shadow: The Cost of our National Obsession, James Brown
10 James Brown Anzac's Long Shadow: The Cost of our National Obsession
Redback / Schwartz 235027 Australia 2014 1863956395 / 9781863956390 Softcover Fine Condition 'A century ago we got it wrong. We sent thousands of young Australians on a military operation that was barely more than a disaster. It's right that a hundred years later we should feel strongly about that. But have we got our remembrance right? What lessons haven't we learned about war, and what might be the cost of our Anzac obsession?' Defence analyst and former army officer James Brown believes that Australia is expending too much time, money and emotion on the Anzac legend, and that today's soldiers are suffering for it. Vividly evoking the war in Afghanistan, Brown reveals the experience of the modern soldier. He looks closely at the companies and clubs that trade on the Anzac story. He shows that Australians spend a lot more time looking after dead warriors than those who are alive. We focus on a cult of remembrance, instead of understanding a new world of soldiering and strategy. And we make it impossible to criticise the Australian Defence Force, even when it makes the same mistakes over and over. None of this is good for our soldiers or our ability to deal with a changing world. With respect and passion, Brown shines a new light on Anzac's long shadow and calls for change. 'Anzac's long shadow is refreshing and engaging. It is also Frank and no-nonsense. James Brown sets himself apart as a leader in this new generation of Anzacs by asking the hard questions.' Peter Leahy, Chief of the Australian Army, 2002-08 'Bold, original, challenging - James Brown tackles the burgeoning Anzac industry and asks Australians to re-examine how we think about the military and modern-day service.' Leigh Sales 'One of Australia's most insightful strategic analysts, James Brown lays bare our cult of Anzac. As our diggers return from war, this book is more necessary than ever before 184 pages.

Guns and Brooches - Australian Army Nursing From The Boer War To The Gulf War, Jan Bassett
11 Jan Bassett Guns and Brooches - Australian Army Nursing From The Boer War To The Gulf War
Oxford University Press 236638 Australia 1992 First Edition 0195533801 / 9780195533804 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good This study investigates the contradictions, paradoxes and anomalies which have arisen for those assigned the role of army nurse. Financial discrimination against them as women in a men's organization has seen the female captain in charge of an operating theatre in Vietnam being paid less than a male corporal working with her. The text relates how guns have replaced brooches as part of the nurses' uniform, as "total war" increasingly makes a mockery of the distinction between non-combatants and combatants. Army nurses have paid heavy personal costs for their experiences. Jan Bassett draws upon their words and photographs to consider the profound impact of war upon four generations of Australian women. 261 pages. Slight crease on front cover. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Australian::Australian War; Military & Warfare; ISBN: 0195533801. ISBN/EAN: 9780195533804.
