Summary
Peter Barton has written an authoritative and revelatory book on Fromelles. He describes its long and surprising genesis, and offers an unexpected account of the fighting; he investigates the interrogation of Anglo-Australian prisoners, and the results of shrewd German propaganda techniques; and he explores the circumstances surrounding the 'missing' Pheasant Wood graves. He also brings new perspectives to the writing of Charles Bean. This compelling and illuminating history dispels many a myth surrounding of the bloodiest battlefields of the Great War
