When Hugo Throssell joined the Light Horse during the First World War, he symbolised the Australian nation at that time: full of youth, vigour, courage and idealism. And when he killed himself in 1933, he remained as emblematic to his country as he'd been in those heady days of 1914 – his youth and future forever darkened by the triumph and tragedy of war.

John Hamilton, bestselling author of Goodbye Cobber, God Bless You and Gallipoli Sniper, has written an extraordinary account of Throssell's life: winner of the Victoria Cross, due to his bravery on Gallipoli; husband to novelist and committed socialist Katharine Susannah Pritchard; and fallen hero, thanks to his public denunciation of the war. The Price of Valour details the battles in Gallipoli and Palestine, and a provides a compassionate and intimate portrait of a real Australian hero.
