Comments: Australia’s Real Baptism of Fire is Greg Raffin’s definitive account of Australia’s first military engagement in the First World War, as Australian forces took control of German colonial territories in New Guinea just five weeks after the declaration of war and seven months before the Gallipoli campaign. His book details the lives of the Australian men who took part in the conflict and the actions of their young nation in uncertain times.
