In April-May 1917 the sleepy hamlet of Bullecourt in northern France became the focus of two battles involving Australian and British troops. Surprisingly little has been written on the AIF’s achievements at Bullecourt. A Greater Sum of Sorrow seeks to remedy this gaping omission. The first comprehensive work on the Australian Army’s Customs and Traditions. With over 370 pages packed with information and imagery, this thoroughly researched and beautifully presented full-colour edition captures the symbols and substance of the Australian Army’s military history. Preserving Our Proud Heritage includes a companion CD of the Australian Army’s Regimental marches and bugle calls, assembled together for the very first time. A must have for military enthusiasts.
