Up and Down Australia, Arthur W. Upfield
1 Up and Down Australia
Arthur W. Upfield Australia ETT Imprint 2016 1925416631 / 9781925416633 Soft cover New Book 23.4 x 15.6 x 1.8 cm 
Arthur William Upfield is well known as the creator of Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte (Bony) who features in 29 crime detection novels, most set in the Australian outback. He also wrote more than 220 short stories and articles, based on his experiences in the bush between 1911 and 1931. Up and Down the Real Australia is the second published collection of Upfield's short works. Kees de Hoog has selected 45 autobiographical articles, ranging from humorous outback anecdotes to personal experiences at Gallipoli and the Somme during the First World War. Kees has added The Murchison Murders, Upfield's account of how the "perfect murder" was developed for his second Bony novel, The Sands of Windee; how Snowy Rowles used it to commit at least one, probably three, murders in 1929; how the crime was solved; and what happened at Rowles' trial in 1932. About the Author: Arthur William Upfield (1 September 1890 13 February 1964) was an Australian writer, best known for his works of detective fiction featuring Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte ('Bony') of the Queensland Police Force, a half-caste Aborigine. Born in England, Upfield moved to Australia in 1910 and fought with the Australian military during the First World War. Following his war service, he travelled extensively throughout Australia, obtaining a knowledge of Australian Aboriginal culture that would later be used extensively in his written works. In addition to his detective fiction, Upfield was also a member of the Australian Geological Society and was involved in numerous scientific expeditions. Upfield's works remained popular after his death, and in the 1970s were the basis for an Australian television series entitled "Boney".

Vietnam Remembered Updated Edition, Edited by Gregory Pemberton
6 Vietnam Remembered Updated Edition
Edited by Gregory Pemberton Australia New Holland Publishers 2017 1742579450 / 9781742579450 Updated Edition Hardcover New New Book 25.5 x 22.0 x 3.2 cm 
Vietnam Remembered Updated Edition. This book makes the first real assessment of what the Vietnam War meant, on the battlefields and in Australia. When the first Australian troops landed on Vietnamese soil, the significance of the conflict was scarcely realised - but in time it was to affect not only tens of thousands of Australians who served in Vietnam, but an extraordinary cross-section of people at home. Debate about the war continues two decades later - and this book provides the vital answers about how Australia got involved in America's war; what happened to our troops in Vietnam; the way protest against the war built up on the home front; how the 'Vietnam era' - the sixties and early seventies - impinged on Australian attitudes; how Australia received its Vietnam veterans on their return. It also looks at our country's relationship with the Vietnamese, now that many live in Australia. A top team of experts show in this book that the Vietnam War had far-reaching effects on Australia's foreign policy, national politics, and social attitudes. Some of the controversies it provoked have spread beyond the years 1965-1971, when Australia was directly involved. This thorough, fascinating account tells the whole story of the Vietnam conflict, abroad and in Australia. It contains the Roll of Honour of those who died as a result of the Vietnam War; and it ends with a fourth edition of the lists of those who served in Vietnam.

The Desert Column, Ion L. Idriess
7 The Desert Column
Ion L. Idriess Australia ETT Imprint 2017 1925416879 / 9781925416879 Soft cover New Book 23.5 x 15.6 x 2.0 cm 
'One hundred years after the charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade at Beersheba in October 1917...The Desert Column is based on the diaries that he kept through out the war. Published in 1932, it is one of Idriess' earliest works. Harry Chauvel noted in the foreword that it was the only book of the campaign that to his knowledge was "viewed entirely from the private soldier's point of view"...Idriess served as a sniper with the 5th Australian Light Horse. Enlisting in 1914, he began his diary "as we crowded the decks off Gallipoli" and he continued writing until returning to Australia...The diaries cover his experience of some of the war's major events from life in the trenches at Gallipoli to the battles at Romani and Beersheba. One of Idriess' strengths as a writer is his ability to place the reader at the scene of the action...The diaries reveal a keenness of observation and a descriptive and pacey style that Idriess would develop further in The Desert Column.' - The Australian War Memorial

Training for War: The History of Headquarters 1st Division 1914-2014, Michael Tyquin
8 Training for War: The History of Headquarters 1st Division 1914-2014
Michael Tyquin Australia Big Sky Publishing 2017 1925520420 / 9781925520422 Hardcover New Book 25.4 x 17.6 x 2.0 cm 
Training for War encapsulates one hundred years of the history of Headquarters 1st Division and the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters. During that time the Headquarters has commanded subordinate formations and units; soldiers; and assets. They all have a place in this story as do many distinguished Australians who have had a close association with the Division, either commanding it or holding senior positions there. This study looks at the organisation's high water mark in World War One as well as quieter times between the world wars, before the tempo picks up again in the period closer to our own time. As with any military formation it cannot be studied in isolation from politics and policy and so reference is made to wider events in the Australian political and Defence environment. For those wanting new insights into one of the Australian Army's most historic divisions this work should satisfy their needs.

The Lost Diggers: Fully Revised and Expanded Edition, Ross Coulthart
9 The Lost Diggers: Fully Revised and Expanded Edition
Ross Coulthart Australia Harper Collins 2016 1460752082 / 9781460752081 2nd Edition Soft cover New Book 27.2 x 22.2 x 2.6 cm 
'It's a treasure trove. It's previously unknown, candid images of our troops just out of the line. Men with the fear and experiences of battle written on their faces.' General Sir Peter Cosgrove Investigative journalist Ross Coulthart, joint winner of the Prime Minister's Prize for History 2015, brings together stunning images of Western Front diggers and the amazing stories behind them. This fully revised and expanded edition offers a wealth of fresh information including more soldiers newly identified with the aid of their families. A trove of portraits taken in the tiny French town of Vignacourt just behind the front lines was found a century later in an ancient metal chest in a French farmhouse. The collection of glass plates has been hailed as one of the most important First World War discoveries ever made. Haunting images show diggers enjoying a brief respite from the horror of the trenches: having their portraits taken for a lark, for a keepsake or to send to loved ones. For all too many, this would be their only memorial, and to gaze into the eyes of these men is to meet a lost generation. 'These stunning black and white photographs stand as mute, yet eloquent, witness to the courage of soldiers and the horror of war ... Remarkably informative, beautifully illustrated and thoroughly researched ...' - Ross Fitzgerald, Sydney Morning Herald
