The Proud 6th : An Illustrated History of the 6th Australian Division 1939-1946, Hardback Book

The Proud 6th : An Illustrated History of the 6th Australian Division 1939-1946 Hardback

Part of the Australian Army History Series series

Description

Following Mark Johnston's acclaimed illustrated histories of the 7th and 9th Australian Divisions, this is his long-awaited history of the 6th Australian Division: the first such history ever published.

The 6th was a household name during World War II. It was the first division raised in the Second Australian Imperial Force, the first division to go overseas and the first to fight.

Its success in that fight, in Libya in 1941, indicated that the standard established in the Great War would be continued.

General Blamey and nearly every other officer who became wartime army, corps and divisional commanders were once members of the 6th Division.

Through photographs and an authoritative text, this book tells their story and the story of the proud, independent and tough troops they commanded.
