Australia’s official First World War correspondent, Charles Bean, saw more of the Australian Imperial Force’s actions and battles on the Western Front than anyone.

Bean’s extensive private wartime diaries, held by the Australian War Memorial, form a unique and personal record of his experiences and observations throughout the war and were the basis of his monumental multi-volume official war history. While a selection of his diaries relating to the Gallipoli campaign have been available for some time, Bean’s Western Front diaries are published here for the first time, edited by esteemed historian Peter Burness, and accompanied by over 500 remarkable photographs, sketches and maps.

About the Editor

Peter Burness is a senior historian, experienced military history curator, and Fellow of the Australian War Memorial. Peter has published extensively on Australia’s First World War military history, including his acclaimed book The Nek.

Unique & Authoritative Addition to The Library of WWI Books

5

For those with an interest in the AIF's Western Front exploits in World War I, this is a great addition to a large library of publications on the subject following the 100th anniversary of WWI. Peter Burness has done an excellent job in extracting topical aspects of Bean's 236 Diaries and presenting them alongside a wonderful gallery of photographs, appropriate to each diary section. The book adds excellent potted biographies of the people mentioned by Bean and other clarifying footnotes.
