Not a book review - but a book alert.
Picked up a copy of this yesterday (published by Big Sky Publishing 2011)

"Drawing on previous inaccessible records - including interviews conducted by the late David Chalk as well as private papers and unpublished manuscripts (all part of the Chalk collection) - Coombes focuses on one Australian brigade, the 4th Infantry, from its formation in 1914, through Gallipoli to its baptism of fire on the Western Front, culminating in the first battle of Bullecourt - which, in turn, leads to the prisoner of war experience."

Should be an interesting read.
Cheers, Frev
