Descripción John Ferguson Pty. Ltd., Sydney NSW, Australia, 1983. First edition: octavo; full leather binding; 400pp., with a full-colour frontispiece and 32pp. of monochrome photographic plates. Mild spotting to the text block edges; some small stains to the top- and fore-edge. Otherwise, near fine in slightly shelfworn dustwrapper, now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Of the twelve volumes of the 'Official history of Australia in the War of 1914-1918', which took more than twenty years to complete, C E W Bean wrote six himself and was overall editor of the entire work. His own six volumes covering the Gallipoli campaign and the Australian Imperial Force in France and Flanders, are unique among national war histories in that the author was actually present at almost all the battles he describes, gathering information at first hand and at great personal risk and supplementing his own observations by interviewing everyone he could, from commanders-in-chief down through generals and their company commanders and junior officers to the men in the trenches. It is Bean's work as war correspondent and historian for which he will be mainly remembered, and it is this period of his life that is the main focus of this book. It reveals a remarkable man who was dedicated to the ideal of recording fully and accurately the Australian fighting man's part in the war; a mild yet heroic man who was mentioned in dispatches for his work under fire on Gallipoli; a 'plain Australian' who refused a knighthood three times in later life because it went against his democratic principles. This is his compellingly told story. Nº de ref. de la librería 11234
