ANZAC’s Dirty Dozen:12 Myths of Australian Military History by Craig Stockings (Editor), Published by NewSouth, 2010. 1st Edition, Softcover, Pgs 335, notes, index.

Condition: Book is in near new condition, no markings or inscriptions within, clean and tidy throughout.


In Anzacs Dirty Dozen a team of renowned historians look to expose a host of stubborn fantasies and fabrications that obscure the real story. Confronting and clear-eyed, Anzacs Dirty Dozen goes beyond the indulgent, politicised and emotionally-charged rhetoric of Anzac, that sacrosanct idea in the national psyche, to find out exactly what it means to be Australian at war, and proud of it. Contents and contributors include: Craig Wilcox: Australian military history doesn't begin on Gallipoli; John Connor: The 'superior' all-volunteer AIF; Chris Clark: What about New Zealand? The problematic history of the Anzac Connection; Craig Stockings: Other people's wars; Eleanor Hancock: 'They also served': Exaggerating women's role in Australia's wars; Dale Blair: The Universal Australian 'fair play' in war; Karl James: The unnecessary waste: Australians in the late Pacific campaigns; Alastair Cooper: Lost at sea: Missing out on Australia's naval history; Bob Hall and Andrew Ross: 'Landmark' battles and the myths of Vietnam; Albert Palazzo: The Myth that Australia 'punches above its weight'; Michael McKinley: Critical reflections on the Australia-US Alliance; and Peter Stanley: Monumental mistake: Is war the most important thing in Australian History?
