Note Includes bibliographical references and index. "Australian military history is full of big names that loom large in the public memory of the nation's wartime experiences - Monash, Chauvel, Jacka and Blamey. But what about the others, influential but lesser known army strategists and leaders, who shaped the Australian Army? This book pulls them out of the shadows. The Shadow Men unites some of Australia's best military historians who shed light on ten of these men, intellectuals, strategists and administrators, foregrounding their achievements and infl uences."--Back cover.
