"Over There" with the Australians Reviews
Let me start by saying it has been a year since I read this book, so my recollection of some details may be hazy.
Interesting book first published during WW1, the book was written by a serving officer in the First AIF about the Australian military contingent. It has been written with a view towards the US market and has a certain flavour of propaganda about it. Despite that it is well worth reading for the many stories it contains, many of which are amusing.
Very educational, informal about another section of war that had been lost in time.
Why wouldn't I love this story? I had relatives who had fought in both World Wars and my admiration of their achievements will never diminish. Mateship is a wonderful thing and sometimes it's the only thing that keeps you going. You're there for each other. I loved the humour and their ability to overcome adversity. Typical Aussies. No wonder the Poms couldn't handle them. Would have been a real culture shock.
A good read from a different respective on world war 1. We all know that they were there but do not hear about how they reacted and survived in the great war.
Chosen as I am reading Anzac history.
Interesting read on the AU lifestyle and close ties to British during the WW1 era. Pretty mush like most other soldier survivors of the conflict. This isn't great literature.
Very insightful on the fate of the Australian contingents during the war. Their personalities, interactions, and friendships are described under the most stressful of conditions.
