IncludedMoreFor Australia, a new nation with a relatively small population, the death of 60,000 soldiers during World War I was catastrophic. This book seeks to retrieve the stories of the extraordinary individuals who gave their lives for the cause. Included are 10 extended biographies of young men who exemplified Australia’s gifted lost generation, from an internationally acclaimed medical researcher to a military officer described as an Australian Kitchener to an engineer who excelled on Mawson’s Antarctic mission. Through the men’s tales, this magisterial book enriches the story of Australia immeasurably.
