1943 1st edition; Thomas Y. Crowell Company publishers, New York; hardbound in decorative boards with black lettering; previous owner's name inside page; many wonderful military illustrations; quite good condition with unmarked pages; dust jacket provided but not in great condition.
This book is wonderful. It reveals everything about our army in Australia. You don't even have to read between the lines. Corporal St. George (who has been out there a year), discloses every detail from his glamorous departure...to life in the steaming jungle...
No maps, no appendix, no index, and just enough figures to confuse the author...
Where else could you find firsthand word-and-picture information on the climate...the fauna...and the world of little insects?
Where else could you find out what the men are doing to their environment...and vice versa?
We certainly don't know. This book is wonderful.
