Description:
London: Alston Rivers, Ltd. , 1913. First edition. Cloth. Good Only. 8.5" by 6". Various. A first edition copy of this fascinating history and development of the Royal Australian Navy, by Charles Edwin Woodrow Bean. Charles Edwin Woodrow Bean was a renowned Australian World War I war correspondent and historian, best remembered as the editor (and one of the authors) of the monumental twelve volume 'Official History of Australia in the War of 1914–1918', that was praised for its incredibly detailed account of the Australian armed forces, whilst maintaining accessibility for a non-military reader. Bean was also an instrumental force in establishing the Australian national War Memorial, and played a key role in the creation and popularisation of the ANZAC legend; a concept that suggests that New Zealand and Australian soldiers possess shared characteristics such as endurance, courage, good humour,and mateship, allegedly exemplified on the battlefields of the First World War.
