Reviews

"Bennett...has deftly reconstructed the battles through a variety of accounts from historians and participants. One of Bennett's many strengths is his ability to transport himself and the reader into the shoes of the different protagonists, elucidating the battle from a variety of perspectives."
--The Age

"Bennett looks deeper than the traditional myth of good men led by bad officers. Thorough research, a gift for storytelling and the deft weaving of the overall battle strategies with the feelings of the men make this a valuable addition to Australia's history of the war."
--Herald Sun

"This is a staggeringly good first book; as good a piece of military history as I've read in a long time...There is a humanity in this book that is moving and deeply involving."
--Michael McKernan, The Canberra Times

"Such a readable account...this is probably the best book about a Western Front battle to be written from an Australian perspective in the last decade. Highly recommended."
--Ron Austin, Mufti

"This is an astounding tome of military history that will not only force readers into asking questions about the Pozières campaign, but it challenges the many "truths" built around the Anzac legend."
--PS News

"Pozieres gives a valuable insight into some of the darkest days of our history and leaves the reader with an enormous sense of gratitude to those who did their duty and paid the ultimate price."
--Sunday Tasmanian

"Scott Bennett's Pozières gives us a clear, fresh view of an epic battle, presenting conclusions that will challenge many readers."
--Dr Peter Stanley, author of Men of Mont St Quentin

"Pozières has languished in Gallipoli's shadow for almost a century. Scott Bennett shines a probing light into that darkness. His passion is evident in every page, and his attention to detail is striking...The tragedy of Pozières tears at our nation's heart. This a book that needed to be written."
--Patrick Lindsay, author of Fromelles and Kokoda Spirit
