Praise for The Australian Victories in France in 1918

‘This commendable volume explains how the 1st AIF, the biggest of 20 Allied Corps on the Western Front, had a huge say in the outcome of WWI. Its detailed battle plans also had a big influence on World War 11. In 1937 General Heinz Guderian copied all Monash’s battle-plan for Amiens into his own book, Achtung-Panzer. He then demonstrated to Hitler Monash’s successful blitzkrieg methods, which were adopted for the German attacks in Europe.’ —Roland Perry 

‘The definitive eyewitness account of Australia’s greatest military achievement by Australia’s greatest military commander, it perhaps eclipses even Bean’s official history as the most important book ever written about Australia’s Great War.’ —Hugh White
