Review

"Bennett looks deeper than the traditional myth of good men led by bad officers. Thorough research, a gift for storytelling, and the deft weaving of the overall battle strategies with the feelings of the men make this a valuable addition to Australia's history of the war." --"Herald Sun"

"Scott Bennett's "Pozieres "gives us a clear, fresh view of an epic battle, presenting conclusions that will challenge many readers." --Peter Stanley, author, "Men of Mont St. Quentin"

"This is a staggeringly good first book; as good a piece of military history as I've read in a long time. . . . There is a humanity in this book that is moving and deeply involving." --"Canberra Times"

Review

'This book will challenge everything you thought you knew about the Anzac legend ... superb.'

(Bega District News 2011-04-22)

'The man can write. So often, someone’s interest in history is not enough to create a good book, but in this case, the desire is matched by competence ... Bennett has sifted and pondered, and come through ten years of research with an account that is compelling.'

(Rosemary Sorensen Bendigo Weekly)

'Bennett looks deeper than the traditional myth of good men led by bad officers. Thorough research, a gift for storytelling and the deft weaving of the overall battle strategies with the feelings of the men make this a valuable addition to Australia's history of the war.'

(Herald Sun 2011-04-23)

'Such a readable account ... this is probably the best book about a Western Front battle to be written from an Australian perspective in the last decade. Highly recommended.'

(Ron Austin Mufti 2011-06-01)

'This is an astounding tome of military history that will not only force readers into asking questions about the Pozières campaign, but it challenges the many "truths" built around the Anzac legend.''

(Rama Gaind PS News 2011-04-25)

'Pozieres gives a valuable insight into some of the darkest days of our history and leaves the reader with an enormous sense of gratitude to those who did their duty and paid the ultimate price.'

(Ross Gates Sunday Tasmanian 2011-04-24)

'Bennett ... has deftly reconstructed the battles through a variety of accounts from historians and participants. One of Bennett's many strengths is his ability to transport himself and the reader into the shoes of the different protagonists, elucidating the battle from a variety of perspectives.'

(Martin Crotty The Age 2011-06-20)

'This is a staggeringly good first book; as good a piece of military history as I've read in a long time … There is a humanity in this book that is moving and deeply involving.'

(Michael McKernan The Canberra Times 2011-04-09)

'Bennett's excellent book is easy to read and full of the detail history buffs need without becoming bogged down.'

(Toowoomba Chronicle 2011-07-13)

‘Scott Bennett’s Pozières gives us a clear, fresh view of an epic battle, presenting conclusions that will challenge many readers.’

(Dr Peter Stanley, author of MEN OF MONT ST QUENTIN 2011-01-13) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
