About the book

Australia's official war correspondent during WWI, Charles Bean was also Australia's first official war historian and the driving force behind the creation of the Australian War Memorial. Famously criticised for his deliberate myth-making as editor of The Anzac Book, Bean was also a public servant, institutional leader, author, activist, thinker, doer, philosopher and polemicist.

In Charles Bean, Man, myth, legacy Australia's top military historians - including Peter Stanley, Peter Burness, Michael McKernan, Jeffrey Grey, Peter Edwards, David Horner, Peter Rees and Craig Stockings - analyse the man, the myth and his long-reaching legacy.

Sales PointsThe nation's leading military historians - including Peter Stanley, Peter Burness, Michael McKernan, Jeffrey Grey, Peter Edwards, David Horner, Peter Rees and Craig Stockings - examine Bean's life in an attempt to grasp the totality of his legacy.This is the first collective attempt to capture and portray the man, his work and his influence on Australian history. A definitive work that will be purchased by military history readers, specialists and students alike.
