STORY OF THE TWELFTH A Record of the 12th Battalion AIF during the Great War 1914-18


A very good narrative account, packed with names. The author was Adjutant of this Tasmanian-based unit and he covers its services from August 1914 through to the bitter end. it fought at Bullecourt in 1917, losing in one month 600 men and gaining two VCs. Many of the recipients of awards are named in the text. The final chapter is effectively an appendix of awards and casualties.
