FROM ANZAC TO THE HINDENBURG LINE. The History of the 9th Battalion AIF.


This history covers the Bn’s formation in Queensland in August 1914 and its subsequent services through to the end of the war. The Gallipoli fighting is described with verve and in good detail. The Western Front battles are covered in equally good detail. The Bn gained one VC, that awarded to Pte John Leak for his work at Pozieres on the 23 July 1916. The index and detailed contents pages are a “plus” for the researcher.
