Gallipoli - The Fatal Shore, Harvey Broadbent
1 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. ISBN/EAN: 9780670040858. Inventory No: 228718. This book is extra heavy, and may involve extra shipping charges to some countries. Hardcover

Anzac's Long Shadow: The Cost of our National Obsession, James Brown
2 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.
