THE THIRTY-NINTH The History of the 39th Battalion Australian Imperial Force

THE THIRTY-NINTH
The History of the 39th Battalion Australian Imperial Force  


OUR PRICE: £22.00  Black Friday Price £17.60

An exceptionally fine history. It covers the adventures of the Bn. from its formation at Ballarat in early 1916 through to the Armistice. The narrative is fluent and full of detail, being based upon edited transcripts of interviews which Allan conducted after the war with former brother officers and with many of the other personnel. The results reliable and authoritative in every way. The 39th fought as an element of 10th Inf Bde, 3rd Aust Div. and its Battle Honours speak for them selves -Massines, Ypres, Broodsinde, Passchendale, Somme, Amiens, Mont St Quentin, Hindenburg Line, and St Quentin Canal. Roll of Honour, Honours and Awards (inc. Recommendations), and unit nominal roll complete this exceptional history.
For Australia the First World War remains the most costly conflict in terms of deaths and casualties. From a population of fewer than five million, 416,809 men enlisted, of which over 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner. In general terms with Australian unit histories the quality of authorship is very good, most of them share the common strength of making plentiful mention of the individual officers and men who served, fought, died, was wounded, or taken prisoner, or who came safely home at the end of it all. They are a prime source for genealogists and military historians.
