Bully beef and balderdash: some myths of the AIF examined and debunked

Graham Wilson

Was Beersheba the last great cavalry charge in history? Did the AIF storm the red light district of Cairo and burn it to the ground while fighting running battles with the military police?

Graham Wilson’s Bully beef and balderdash shines a critical light on these and other well-known myths of the AIF in the First World War. With meticulous analysis, Wilson sets out to debunk these myths, using first-hand accounts and official records to unravel the facts and set the historical record straight.
