10 Beale, Pat Legends of the War The AIF in France 1918
North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2017 1925588645 / 9781925588644 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. 161 pages 1918 was a year of triumph for the Australian Corps in France yet today this is seldom recognised by most Australians. Our perceptions have been clouded by legends, built up over the past century, that have trivialised their achievement. Here an ex-soldier, Pat Beale DSO MC, uses his military background to help re-discover why and how the Corps was so successful and also the reasons their triumph has been ignored. This concise and knowledgeable account will not sit comfortably with everyone. As the author admits, he slaps a number of 'sacred cows' on the rump and challenges some deeply held perceptions, but he hopes it will encourage a better understanding of the great victory of those men and how they achieved it. ID297796

13 Bennett, Bruce The Spying Game : An Australian Angle
North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2012 1921875682 / 9781921875687 1st Edition Softcover 
Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. MINT - a NEW copy. 222 pages What are the roles of reason and imagination in secret intelligence? How do apparently normal people get involved? What happens to them? While British, American and Soviet empires have produced plentiful supplies of heroes, villains and stirring tales, Australians have typically averted their gaze from this country's involvement in the ‘second oldest profession’. And yet espionage has been a part of Australia's history since the earliest European imaginings of a southern land mass. Australian spies have produced their share of heroes and villains and this book shows how they influenced Australia's diplomatic and military policy, and the personal price some of them paid. ID267893

My Feral Australians. Windy Tales from Down-Under, Burry, J.Neil
20 Burry, J.Neil My Feral Australians. Windy Tales from Down-Under
Adelaide Published by Author 2010 0646536036 / 9780646536033 1st Edition Softcover 
Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. Very Good condition. 122 pages Migrants from Britain to Australia in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries came with various forms of historical consciousness or accumulated historical memories, imparted by the education they had received. They also came with religious traditions. The original colonists in 1788 occupied a land that they considered belonged to nobody. The Aborigines who occupied this land had a civilisation based on 60,000 years of occupation and survival by hunting and gathering. The author reflects on his experiences travelling and living in the vast expanses of Australia since arriving here on 1956. He now has a historical consciousness that he considers an Australian historical consciousness derived from his experiences of over 50 years in this country - to find out why, you need to read the book! ID273501
