This is the essential collection of the most vivid, exciting and informative Australian writing about war.
In 'Eyewitness: The Best Australian War Writing', Garrie Hutchinson has collected and edited a great range of front-line stories from the great variety of conflicts in which Australia has been involved. A salutary lesson is how often we seem to have been back to the same places in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
The chronological collection of the best war writing is connected by brief scene-setting narrative and pertinent biographical detail of the writers involved. Contributors include Banjo Patterson, Peter Wilson, Paul McGeough, Charles Bean, Osmar White, Alan Moorehead, Wilfred Burchett and many more.
