The story of the 58th and 59th Australian Infantry Battalions 1913-1942.
This is the story of the 58th and 59th Australian Infantry Battalions of the 15th Brigade in the Great War. They represented a small fraction of that volunteer army, but in their ranks were some remarkable men.
The "mutiny" of the 59th Battalion is dealt with in some detail using diaries and reports from new sources. The book includes around 400 maps and images, complete Rolls of Honour, and a Nominal Roll of survivors for both battalions.
There is also a chapter on the 58th / 59th Bn, formed in 1942 from the two militia battalions and which fought in New Guinea and Bougainville.
Hard cover, photographs, 496 pages.
