Product description


"This is the work of a real historian who has gotten his hands dirty doing real work...a powerful and valuable book."
Craig Stockings, Australian Historical Studies

"Written with considerable flair and empathy."
Murray Johnson, Australian Journal of Politics and History

"There is so much to admire and to praise in this book. The research is prodigious, the storytelling hypnotic, the confidence and clarity of the writer remarkable. Do not for a second think of this book as military history only or mostly...This is a rich book, to be sure. One that I read with such pleasure and admiration. It is a wonderful tribute to the 10 men whose lives we discover for the first time, an extraordinary account of Australia from about the 1870s and into the 1930s, and deeply moving."
Michael McKernan, Canberra Times

"McMullin has set a new standard in Australian military biographical, for which he must be congratulated. Very highly recommended."
Ron Austin, Mufti

"A remarkably good book...Farewell Dear People has elevated the study of Australian involvement in the Great War to a new dimension in courage, commitment and sacrifice."
Stephen Loosley, The Spectator

"Farewell, Dear People is a powerful revelation of the lasting cost of the Great War--a deeply felt engagement with lost lives, and a superb union of research and writing."
Peter Stanley, author of Men of Mont St Quentin

"Superbly researched, and written with great heart."
Les Carlyon
