Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

Cameras were banned at the Western Front when the Anzacs arrived in 1916, prompting correspondent Charles Bean to argue continually for Australia to have a dedicated photographer. He eventually assigned an enigmatic polar explorer - George Herbert

Wilkins. Within weeks of arriving at the front Wilkins' exploits were legendary. He did what no photographer had previously dared to do. He went 'over the top' with the troops and ran forward to photograph the actual fighting. 240 x 163mm., pp. xxii (preliminaries), 267, black & white plates, Military Formations and Acronyms, notes, index. Hard cover in dust jacket. Contents and dust jacket as NEW.
