15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond Gallipoli : new perspectives on Anzac by Raelene Frances( )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much of the scholarship on the Great War, and especially the Dardanelles/C̦anakkale campaign, has been viewed through a narrow national prism and focused exclusively on military aspects of the engagement. This new collection of essays offers fresh perspectives from countries on both sides of the trenches of Gallipoli. Examined here are intersections of art and memory and the role that material culture and museums play in the representation and commemoration of war. The ideas and writing draw on fiction, poetry and diaries, as well as new digital media, which together frame the memory of war. Our ongoing encounter with Gallipoli's much-contested landscape takes on new hues and reveals untold stories. Beyond Gallipoli takes an innovative approach to the varied and controversial cultural legacies of an event which continues to shape the identity of Australia, New Zealand and Turkey."--Page 4 of cover
The last battle : soldier settlement in Australia, 1916-1939 by Bruce Scates( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Australian soldiers returned from World War I they were offered the chance to settle on 'land fit for heroes.' Promotional material painted a picture of prosperous farms and contented families, appealing to returned servicepeople and their families hoping for a fresh start. Yet 20 years after the inception of these soldier settlement schemes, fewer than half of the settlers remained on their properties. ... Bruce Scates and Melanie Oppenheimer map out a deeply personal history of the soldiers' struggle to transition from ANZAC to farmer and provider. At its foundation lie thousands of individual life stories shaped by imperfect repatriation policies. This book examines the environmental challenges, the difficulties presented by the physical and psychological damage many soldiers had sustained during the war, and the vital roles of women and children."--Jacket
Anzac journeys : returning to the battlefields of World War II by Bruce Scates( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australians have been making pilgrimages to the battlefields and cemeteries of World War Two since the 1940s, from the jungles of New Guinea and South-East Asia to the mountains of Greece and the deserts of North Africa. They travel in search of the stories of lost loved ones, to mourn the dead and to come to grips with the past. With characteristic empathy, Bruce Scates charts the history of pilgrimages to Crete, Kokoda, Sandakan and Hellfire Pass. He explores the emotional resonance that these sites have for those who served and those who remember. Based on surveys, interviews, extensive fieldwork and archival research, Anzac Journeys offers insights into the culture of loss and commemoration and the hunger for meaning so pivotal to the experience of pilgrimage. Richly illustrated with full-colour maps and photographs from the 1940s to today, Anzac Journeys makes an important and moving contribution to Australian military history
A new Australia : citizenship, radicalism, and the first republic by Bruce Scates( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1890s were a watershed in Australian history, a time of mass unemployment, bitter industrial confrontation and sweeping social change. They also nurtured a flourishing radical culture of anarchists, socialists, single taxers, feminists and republicans. In this innovative new study, Bruce Scates reappraises these radicals and the troubled world they belonged to."--BOOK JACKET. "A New Australia draws out many of the striking resonances between the 1890s and the 1990s, reinforcing the book's pressing contemporary relevance."--BOOK JACKET

World war one : a history in 100 stories by Bruce Scates( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been no shortage of heroic stories over the course of the Anzac Centenary: stories of courage and sacrifice, fortitude and endurance, mateship and resolve.

On dangerous ground : a Gallipoli story by Bruce Scates( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is 1915, during World War I at Gallipoli, and Lt. Roy Irwin is missing. The young woman who loves him, and the men who fought beside him, begin their search for Lt. Irwin. Later, in 1919, historian C.E.W. Bean returns to Anzac Cove with artist George Lambert and soldier Harry Vickers to solve the greatest mystery of the campaign, to discover Gallipoli's secret. Forward to 2015, and Dr. Mark Troy's quest to preserve the peninsula from roadworks is sidetracked by political intervention and diplomatic intrigue. But a flirtation with a dynamic young woman from Army Intelligence uncovers long-forgotten documents protecting Gallipoli's graves. In this eagerly awaited book, one of Australia's leading historians uses a playful hybrid of history and fiction - moving between the historical realm and the world of the imagination - to recreate the most dramatic moments of the Gallipoli campaign in World War I
