Event Details

You are invited to meet Jonathan King when he introduces his new book Palestine Diaries.

Culminating with the cavalry charge at Beersheba on 31 October 1917, Palestine Diaries is the story of Australia's Light Horsemen of WWI, told in their own brutally honest words - day by day, battle after bloody battle.

One hundred years after that now-legendary battle - widely considered the last great cavalry charge- Dr. Jonathan King argues that the breathtaking achievement of the 4th Light Horse Brigade should become the cornerstone of our national identity.

The soldiers in these pages were the first to achieve incredible victories for their new nation - ahead of the Western Front and unlike the defeats of Gallipoli. These young Australians helped demolish the centuries-old Ottoman Empire, a victory that would not only change the course of the war, but would also plant the seeds of the modern Middle Eastern conflicts.

Published together here, many for the first time, are the diaries, letters and photos of the brave young men whose service and sacrifice helped shape a nation.
