What an amazing Australian!

This audiobook went beyond what I thought was going to a book on the 'war general' and delved into the passions and interests of Monash prior, during & after the war. I got to experience the 'human' side to what has been, in so many history books, a rather two dimensional figure.
I found the ongoing machinations of Hughes, Murdoch & C.E.W. Bean elucidating - finally putting paid to why Monash was not heralded as a hero general by the latter in his works. If you want an example of How sheer brilliance, force of character & integrity can win out despite the odds, then I highly recommend this audiobook.
