The belief in the superior fighting qualities of Australian soldiers in World War I is part of the national consciousness, and the much touted 'special' relationship of Britain and Australia during the war is accepted as fact. This provocative and wide-ranging book is a reassessment of Australia's role in World War I and its relations - military, economic, political and psychological - with Britain. Eric Andrews shows that it suited all parties - in Britain and Australia - to propagate the myth of Anzac for their own purposes. Includes an Index.
