Some called it cold-blooded murder. A crime committed by British officers with no concept of modern combat, who sent thousands of Australian soldiers needlessly to their death during the Boer and Great War. It was a senseless bloodbath of blunders and wholesale butchery, but those who called the shots got off scot free.
Here, they are called to account by Australia’s, and arguably the world’s finest generals: John Monash, Brudenell White, Harry Chauvel and Spencer Browne, who not only fought to win, but to protect the men under their command whose grit determination to survive and conquer made Australia great.
"I have read much about these remarkable Australian leaders, but this book has brought together their experiences through the Boer and Great War in such a unique and fascinating way that it has taught me much and I now hold those Australian generals in even higher esteem."
