The 28th: A Record of War Service in the Australian Imperial Force, 1915-19 is a work that details the history of the battalion during the First World War. Colonel Collett evidently asked himself: What do the friends of the men of the Battalion want to know? They want to know what the men did and what the Battalion did. What was the daily life of the man in the training camp- on the transports- in the war areas, and in the trenches. Of those who fell, they want to know, if possible, how and when they fell and where they were buried. Of those who were wounded, they want to know what they were doing when they stopped a bullet, and how they were a fterwards treated in hospital or in Blighty. The public want a brief outline of the great doings of the Battalion, and all these things are plainly and proudly told by the writer. This book is part of the World War One Centenary series- creating, collating and reprinting new and old works of poetry, fiction, autobiography and analysis. The series forms a commemorative tribute to mark the passing of one of the worlds bloodiest wars, offering new perspectives on this tragic yet fascinating period of human history. Each publication also includes brand new introductory essays and a timeline to help the reader place the work in its historical context.
