This is our 15th podcast and being published on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. At the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, one hundred years ago, the guns fell silent.
From an an Australian perspective, in the four years of the war, some 330,000 Australians had served overseas. Some 60,000 never made it home. The social effects in Australia lasted for years.
For this podcast, we are joined by Roland Perry. Roland is the author of over 30 books, and six on WW1 and WW2 history. In 2011 he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia 'for services to literature as an author”. In 2004, he published a book titled Monash- the Outsider who won a war. He joins us from Melbourne.
