About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


"If [Barrie] were a war poet, he would be a bush balladeer, galloping assuredly from one stanza to the next, breathlessly evoking one adventure after another in vivid, syncopated detail...Barrie's book offers a timely reminder that not everyone felt the war was a pointless waste of life. For some men, the war was their reason to live."
--Weekend Australian

"An easy read, combining details of the action with an account of the personal side of the soldier's life both in the trenches and out and a fair amount of humour thrown in...a good way to learn about World War I without feeling bogged down in a history text."
--Weekend Herald

"One of the positive side effects of the excesses of the "centenary of Anzac" will sources giving us fresh insights into a war we thought we knew. John Barrie's memoir of his service on Gallipoli, in Britain and on the western front is, I hope, a harbinger of more to come."
--Peter Stanley, Canberra Times
