Publisher's Summary

C.E.W. Bean's wartime reports and photographs mythologised the Australian soldier and helped spawn the notion that the Anzacs achieved something nation-defining on the shores of Gallipoli and the battlefields of western Europe.
In his quest to get the truth, Bean often faced death beside the Diggers in the trenches of Gallipoli and the Western Front – and saw more combat than many. But did Bean tell Australia the whole story of what he knew? In this fresh new biography Ross Coulthart explores the man behind the legend.

Fascinating Character

I have long been interested in Charles Bean. This book has been an interesting insight into his life and how as the war went on, Beans attitude towards the High Command had changed by 1917. Also how his belief in the White Australia policy started to changed with the rise of Nazism by the late 30s. A very brave Journalist who left a great legacy to the ethics of journalism now so sadly lacking today. It's seems very little has changed with military censorship and deceitful generals.
Would recommend this book to anyone who may have some misconceptions about the so called Anzac legend.
