OFFICIAL HISTORY OF AUSTRALIA IN THE WAR OF 1914-1918 Volume XI – Australia During the War


The eleventh volume of The Official History of Australia in the War of 1914–1918 is a companion to the earlier volumes that dealt with Australia’s military operations. Scott’s work covers the early unanimity with which the war was greeted, the growing unease at the cost of war, the anguish of the conscription referenda and the political turmoil that followed. Scott discusses censorship, the internment of aliens, the formation and equipment of Australia’s forces and the development of a war economy.
