Description:
A perfected modern battle plan is like nothing so much as a score for an orchestral composition, where the various arms and units are the instruments, and the tasks they perform are their respective musical phrases. Every individual unit must make its entry precisely at the proper moment and play its phrase in the general harmony.

John Monash who was the most innovative general of World War One? For Tim Fischer, the answer has to be Australia's John Monash, a man who, for all the recognition he received in his lifetime and after, has arguably not been given his proper due within the major military histories of this conflict.

Fischer also asks why Monash was never promoted to Field Marshal, as international precedent suggested was most appropriate, pointing the finger primarily at the Australian prime minister from 1915 to 1923, Billy Hughes, within a wider context of establishment suspicion towards this son of a German Jewish migrant. Might not a posthumous granting of the Field Marshal rank now constitute a due reward for this great servant of the Australian nation, and a salutary reminder of his legacy?
