Description

The eleventh volume of The Official History of Australia in the War of 1914–1918 is the necessary companion to the earlier volumes dealing with Australia’s military operations. Scott’s work covers the early unanimity with which the war was greeted, the growing unease at the cost of war, the anguish of the conscription referenda and the political turmoil that followed. Working from the question, “How did Australia react to the pressures of war?”, Scott traces its effects in discussions of censorship, the internment of aliens, the formation and equipment of Australia’s forces and the development of a war economy.
