Abstract
 
Description
In Eyewitness, Garrie Hutchinson has selected the cream of writing from Australia's wars. Many of our finest writer-reporters are featured - C.E.W. Bean, Alan Moorehead, Paul McGeough, Kenneth Slessor, Ray Parkin, Osmar White, John Martinkus, Peter Ryan and more. The settings range from the beach at Anzac Cove in 1914 to the Kokoda Track, from desert dugouts to a hotel in Baghdad. Eyewitness shows how Australian war correspondents, official and unofficial, have written with courage and conviction, under pressure of censorship and physical and technical hardship. This is writing of great immediacy, passion and truthfulness, with each selection accompanied by a brief scene-setting narrative and a biographical sketch.Contributors include: Monica Attard, C.E.W. Bean, Wilfred Burchett, Pat Burgess, Tony Clifton, W.H. Downing, G.H. Fearnside, Cameron Forbes, Garrie Hutchinson, Ion Idriess, Charles Jager, Betty Jeffrey, George Johnston, Frank Legg, Hugh Lunn, Irris Makler, Gilbert Mant, John Martinkus, Paul McGeough, Gary McKay, Alan Moorehead, Lindsay Murdoch, Ray Parkin, Rohan Rivett, E.J. Rule, Peter Ryan, Kenneth Slessor, Geoffrey Tebbutt, Osmar White, Chester Wilmot.Garrie Hutchinson has written or edited over thirty books, including Eyewitness: Australians Write from the Front-line; Gallipoli: the Pilgrimage Guide and the best-selling Pilgrimage: A Traveller's Guide to Australia's Battlefields. - from Amzon
