about

Critically acclaimed authors and highly regarded military history titles. Easy to read and well illustrated with numerous maps and images. Includes extracts from diaries and letters never published before. Written in an engaging manner for both mainstream readers and military enthusiasts. This pack contains two titles: BEATEN DOWN BY BLOOD "Bomford sets a standard for the mass of centenary histories of the AIF to come. It is a high one." Weekend Australian "A coherent narrative of the battle, no mean feat for any Western Front history." Beaten Down by Blood charts an extraordinary journey from the trenches facing Mont St Quentin through the frenetic phases of the battle until the final objectives are taken. This is the story, often told in the words of the men themselves, of the capture of the 'unattackable' Mont and the 'invincible' fortress town of Péronne, two of the great feats of Australian forces in the First World War. The Battle of Mont St Quentin-Péronne represents the Australian Corps at its very best, its diggers fighting for peace and satisfied that, 'whatever might lie ahead, at least everything was right behind them' CRUMPS & CAMOUFLETS "An excellent historical record of a largely unknown part of the war." Australian Defence Magazine "A magnificent book which certainly does justice to those brave tunnelers. Highly recommended!" Mufti Magazine Victorian RSL Below the shattered ground that separated the British and German infantry on the Western Front in the First World War, an unseen and largely unknown war was raging, fought by miners, 'tunnelers' as they were known. It was a war within a war in its most literal sense. Australian tunneling companies took part in many of the largest battles on the Western Front. Crumps and Camouflets, is the first complete history of Australia's role in the tunneling war of 1914-1919, of the men and units in which they served, and of life in the tomblike tunnels of the war underground.
