Melbourne University Press, Melbourne - revised edn ISBN:0522843409, 1987. hardcover, 6" x 8¾", with dust jacket. AS NEW book in AS NEW unclipped dust jacket. This is the moving war-autobiography of world-famous, London-based lexicographer, Eric Partridge (born in New Zealand, educated in Queensland, Australia). Written from the ranks, his memoirs are a counterblast to the vulgar big-bronzed-Anzac, larrikin-lair stereotype of the Australian soldier. His account of the battle of Pozieeres is a brave attempt to describe the indescribable. The agony of the common soldier and his preoccupations and attitudes have rarely been better depicted. Geoffrey Serle adds commentary to the text, and provides a sketch of Partridge's early life.
