Charles Bean wrote or was editor for the OFFICIAL HISTORY OF AUSTRALIA IN THE WAR OF 1914 - 18 C E W BEAN.

The history follows the Australian Flying Corps on the Western Front and in the Middle Eastern Battles. Of the total war book, 12 of the 27 chapters are about the Australian AFC supporting the Australian Light Horse advance in the Middle East including Palestine.

The AFC first confronted the German pilots on the Western Front in 1917 above the Battlefields of 3rd Ypres during the Battle of Passchendaele. Monash saw the great military possiblities of this new air force and quickly combined air attacks in battles. The AFC was primarily used for ground support during the famous 1918 Battles of Amiens Hamel Mount St Quentin and the many advances made on the Hindenburg Line by Australian Battalions.
