Rural Australia and the Great War: From Tarrawingee to Tangambalanga
In the cities and in the countryside of Australia, the Great War of 1914-1918 marched to somewhat different tempos. John McQuilton evokes the wartime experience of all rural Australians by capturing the moods of the country towns and hamlets of North Eastern Victoria.
Rural Australia and the Great War is unique among writing on the First World War in creating a richly detailed picture of wartime in a particular part of country Australia. For country and city readers alike this is fascinating social history.
