About the Authors
  • In this insightful and revealing study, Justin Fantauzzo uses a wide range of documentary and visual sources to explore the experience and memory of British and Dominion soldiers who fought in the Middle East and Macedonia during the First World War. He shows that not only was the experience of these campaigns markedly different to their counter-parts on the Western Front, but so too were the memories and portrayals of these campaigns in the inter-war period. Fantauzzo's analysis highlights the disparities and contradictions that exist in the experience and memory of war and helps us to rethink what the war meant to the soldiers who fought in this region, how soldiers understood the war itself and how it was remembered.

    • The first full-length study comparing the experience and memory of British and Dominion soldiers in the Middle East and Macedonia during the First World War
    • Explores how British and Dominion soldiers who did not fight on the Western Front - a number that neared two million men - made sense of where they were fighting, what they were fighting for, and for whom they were fighting
    • Incorporates a wide range of sources, including diaries, letters, soldier photography, soldier newspapers, army concert parties, newsreel films, newspapers, journals, memoirs, and scrapbooks from archives in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada

    'This book will be useful for scholars and public alike who wish to know more about what it was like to serve in theatres 'away from the Western Front'.' John Siblon, Journal of British Studies

    'Drawing on a sizable amount of bibliographical sources (pp. 226–243), the author ensures the great scientific value of his approach, and by reconstructing interesting life stories and the universe of the combatants in a way that is easy and pleasant to read and understand, he invites the reader to a useful and enriching lecture about a topic that is still debated today.' Iuliu-Marius Morariu, Transylvanian Review
