This is an auction for THE WESTERN FRONT DIARIES by Jonathan King.

Amazon.com reviews:

"Hidden under the shadow of Gallipoli for decades, the breath-taking story of what really happened on the Western Front has finally been brought into the bright light of day. Thankfully, the diggers serving in this first Australian Army Corps and under an Australian commander for the first time, actually helped win the war. Using hundreds of brutally honest and extraordinary eyewitness accounts of the diggers in the muddy and bloody trenches, Western Front Diaries reproduces their private diaries, letters and postcards to tell of their heart-rending experiences, battle by bloody battle. With its gallery of unpublished photographs, Western Front Diaries tells without embellishment the stories of the Australian soldiers and finally puts the Western Front on the map."

"FIVE STARS!!! What a brilliant book. One of the best WW1 books I've read - war from the viewpoint of the soldier, as told by soldiers themselves. And finally some recognition of those left behind - lives broken and destroyed. An estimated 60,000 Australian returned soldiers died from war-related causes in the 10 years after 1918. To date they have been ignored. No longer thanks to Jonathan King. Great read."
