5.0 out of 5 stars BATTLE SCARRED, 3 Feb. 2012
This is without doubt a first class book in every sense by the auther Craig Deayton. Not one word is wasted in the telling of the story of the 47th Battalion, Australian Imperial Force during World War One. What strikes you from the start of reading this book is the obvious in depth research that has gone into making it such an enjoyable read. Battalion war diaries are always a good source of information, but with the added power of personal accounts the book gives the reader much more of a background to events than just war diaries could do alone.
Along the way i was greatly amused,saddened,shocked and inspired by the men of the 47th. Some of the stories of the troops ships crossing on the high seas had me smilling from ear to ear as they got up to various antics during there voyage. also, the absolute bravery from men who's disapline was some time found wanting,but had it where it mattered.

BATTLE SCARRED. The 47th Battalionin the First World War. By Craig Deayton.
ISBN: 9780987057402(hbk.)

A well crafted book and a must to read.
