Chauvel of the Light Horse : The biography of General Sir Harry Chauvel of Beersheba and Damascus , K.C.B., G.C.M.G., ' by A J Hill .
Harry Chauvel commanded the Light Horse Division in WW1 and is considered one of Australia’s greatest wartime leaders. He had no misgivings about his troops; they had sheer quality, leadership and experience; many had been at Gallipoli. These men of the Light Horse were without peer. Chauvel was a military genius who devised the attack of Beersheba in October 1917. During the Beersheba Charge it was Chauvel who gave the famous command, " Put Grant straight at it ! "
High text detail World War One exploits in Middle East . In 1918, the Australian Light Horse were in a race (maybe wrong word) against Lawrence of Arabia to be first to take Damascus. Has some very nice print plates depicting the Battles, well documented maps.
