Brilliant author. Gallipoli and The Great War are without doubt two of the very best books about Australian involvement in the First World War.
Agreed. I’ve read both multiple times.
He made hard slog through intimate detail incredibly interesting. That’s a skill.
RIP D ick Dale, surf-rock guitarist… most well-known for this (and unfortunately by young 'uns more through being sampled by the appalling Blackeyed Peas…)
He is the reason we had surf music, brilliant guitarist.
