The Battle of Fromelles - an ANZAC Tragedy

by Peter O'Reilly

On the 19th July 1916, Australia suffered its worse single day military loss in its history, with in excess of 5,000 young men killed, lost or wounded during the infamous Battle of Fromelles in northern France. What makes this debacle even more tragic is that it has been rarely spoken of in the historical analysis of Australia's commitment to the Great War of 1914 to 1918.
This book explores these events through the eyes of six young Australians, leaving the shores of Melbourne, as innocents, anticipating a journey of adventure. But within time, their naive view of all things war would also be replaced by a harsher reality. They would be finally taken to the battlefields under-equipped and ill-prepared, to experience at first hand the horror of war that could never be imagined. Man...

"A Collection of Letters" is an early and not well-known work by the famous author of such great novels like "Pride and Prejudice", "Sense and Sensibility", "Emma", "Northanger Abbey", "Mansfield Park" and others. The book is written in the form of an epistolary novel what makes it seem to be very vivid and authentic. It´s a relatively short but also very intersting text, because you can already see a rough idea for the later "Sense and Sensibilty" in it. A very nice read, especially for Austen fans....
