Summary
Albert Jacka was the people's hero ofthe Great War. In 1919 he returned to a triumphant welcome as thousands lined the streets to cheer the first Australian to be awarded the Victoria , Cross, at Gallipoli. ln Belgium and France he had won the Military Cross twice and many believed, with Charles Bean, that they should have been VCs. He was beloved by his troops but resented by his superiors. In peacetime he ran a successful business but then returned to battle for his mates as the Great Depression threatened everything they had fought for. The man himself has been an enigma, until now. With forensic skill, Robert Macklin reveals an extraordinary character - a very Australian hero
