    At the beginning of WW1, the British
    government invited Australia to nominate
    one official war correspondent. Charles Bean
    was that man, and after being dispatched to
    Gallipoli, he dedicated his life to chronicling
    and understanding Australia in wartime. A
    century after the end of the Great War, his
    legacy is honoured with this publication
    of his diaries. This book is a visual treat;
    alongside the notebooks, there are coloured
    pictures of documents, paintings of soldiers,
    maps and travelling ephemera. Bean’s
    stories chronicle the Australian experience
    of war, encountering soldiers, military
    leaders and politicians. Providing an adept
    description of the burgeoning identity of a
    nation, this collection offers the opportunity
    to inhabit the Australian consciousness and
    reflect on the legacy of war.
