The military valor, scholarship, and entrepreneurial leadership of Sir John Monash are recounted in this biography of one of Australia's most famous public figures. While his academic prowess in the fields of literature, music, theater, language, and Jewish scholarship distinguished him at the University of Melbourne, Monash gained national fame during World War I when he was one of the few senior allied generals to emerge from Gallipoli with his reputation unscathed. His pioneering use of reinforced concrete, leadership of the state electricity commission, and work to secure the Gippsland's huge brown coal deposits were signatures of his domestic economic leadership. This revealing portrait provides a glimpse of the intensely personal and introspective man behind the confident leader
