Phillip Schuler

Mark Baker SHOP:9781760111656

The remarkable life of one of Australia’s greatest war correspondents.

Phillip Schuler, a handsome young journalist from the Melbourne Age, covered the Gallipoli campaign alongside Charles Bean. Schuler captured the heroism and horror for Australian newspaper readers in ways the meticulous yet dry prose of Bean never could. After his classic account of the campaign, Australia in arms, was completed in early 1916, Schuler abandoned the relative safety of a correspondent’s job and joined the AIF as a soldier. In June 1917, he was killed in Flanders at just 27 years of age.

Mark Baker’s account of Schuler’s brief but extraordinary life gives a true insight into the man, who left an indelible mark on all who encountered him. Baker’s biography gives us a new and compelling perspective on the power of journalism and Australia at war.

Soft cover, photographs, 338 pages.
