Arthur Blackburn, VC

An Australian hero, his men, and their two world wars

Andrew Faulkner

Arthur Blackburn, VC
Gallipoli hero, Victoria Cross recipient, battalion and brigade commander, conqueror of Damascus and defiant antagonist of the Japanese - by any measure Arthur Seaforth Blackburn was one of Australia's most remarkable soldiers. This, the first Blackburn biography, details the famous battles that shaped Australia. It tells Blackburn's story through the eyes of his comrades, including many from his battalion who survived the horrors of the Burma Railway, and includes photographs taken by Blackburn never published before.

Praise for Arthur Blackburn, VC:
'Faulkner has closely liaised with Blackburnís family to bring us a story as factual as can possibly be written. Descriptions of battles and battlefields provide riveting, page-turning reading.' - Donald Lawie, M/C Reviews
