Pozieres

£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The capture of Pozieres in 1916 was heralded as a stunning tactical victory for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, yet, for the exhausted survivors, the war-weary public, and the families of the dead and maimed, victory came at such terrible cost it seemed indistinguishable from defeat. Via letters and diaries, this account tells the stories of those men who fought at Pozieres, revealing a battlefield drenched in chaos, suffering, and fear. Demonstrating how commanders struggled with a war conducted on an unprecedented scale and how the survivors witnessed appalling human tragedy and returned home as both heroes and shattered men, this chronicle uncovers the story behind the official history. Candid and devastating, this book reassesses Australia's involvement in the Great War.
