"The Anzac legend was born in the bloody cauldron of the Great War. It represented the values of courage, initiatives, egalitarianism, mateship, loyalty & sacrifice. The Australian people embraced it as the core of the national identity of their new country. Tragically, it has been under attack ever since by powerful forces determined to destroy it. This began in the post-war era, intensified during the Cultural Revolution of the Sixties, and has reached a crescendo as Australia approaches the Centennial commemoration of the Great War. This book explores the origins of the legend & exposes the century-long campaign of denigration against it by politicians, academics, & sections of the media." Size: 180mm - 250mm. 343 pages.
