Comments: Accounts of Australians During the Great War in the Middle East, at Gallipoli and on the Western Front.
Two accounts of the Australian Army at war (Two Books in One):
“Over There” With the Australians by R. Hugh Knyvett
Over the Top With the Third Australian Division by G. P. Cuttris
During the Great War all of Britain’s colonies and dominions rallied to the appeal of the motherland to fight the common enemy. None responded more positively than Australia. Leonaur has gathered together two accounts into this single volume for students and enthusiasts of the period to enjoy. The Australian experience of war is finely captured in them both. The first, written by a scout, takes the reader through recruitment, training, embarkation and a period in Egypt before gruelling combat on the Gallipoli peninsula and the bloody trenches of the Western Front. The second account is filled with vignettes of the Australian experience of war in Europe. This is another ‘two for the price of one’ volume by Leonaur available in softcover or hardback with dust jacket for collectors.
