ReviewsWe Australians have much to be proud of in our history. The pioneers, the heroes of Gallipoli who proved that our fledgling country could lose battles as well as any great power of the old world; the sporting legends - Bradman, Fraser, Capper - who stamped us on the world stage; and the great scientific minds and statesmen who in all likelihood also existed ... all these and more can be found in these pages, their tales told, perhaps not for the first time, but in a much less boring manner than previously. - Ben Pobjie
