A classic World War I memoir by Lt Joe Maxwell, one of the Australia's most decorated WWI diggers. this is his colourful eyewitness account of the role of 18th Battalion AIF in Gallipoli and the Western Front. After serving at Gallipoli, Maxwell, together with so many other Aussie diggers, was transferred to the Western Front. In just twelve months during 1917-1918 he was commissioned and awarded the DCM, Military Cross and Bar, and VC. this vivid and gripping memoir is a unique record of life as a World War One digger: Joe was in most of the major battles of the Western Front and graphically describes the action he saw, as well as the notorious larrikinism -and romantic adventures-of the off-duty diggers. With a new Afterword detailing Maxwell's life after repatriation back to Australia, this is an edition to be treasured.
