CEW Bean, War Correspondent

"But the Australian Imperial Force is not dead.
That famous Army of generous men marches still down the long lane of its country’s history, with bands playing and rifles slung, with packs on shoulders, white dust on boots, and bayonet scabbards and entrenching tools flapping on coutless thighs – as the French countryfolk and the fellaheen of Egypt knew it.

What these men did nothing can alter now.
The good and the bad, the greatness and smallness of their story will stand.
Whatever of glory it contains nothing now can lessen.
It rises, as it will always rise, above the mists of ages, a monument to great-hearted men; and, for their nation, a possession for ever."
Charles Bean

This book is written by Ross Coulthart who is a presenter on the Seven network program, Sunday Night. Many people would remember a few years ago, Ross investigated for that program a unique collection of WW1 photographs found in France. Later he wrote about the collection in the Australian WW1 bestseller, The Lost Diggers. 

This is a story of a great man that had to be told, the history of Charles Bean the Australian WW1 Official Historian who founded the Australian War Memorial.
