Legends of the War The AIF in France 1918, Beale, Pat
6 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
