"Morale is a story of the Australian Light Horse campaigns in Gallipoli and Palestine during World War I, but it is a war story with a difference. It deals less with actual fighting than with what may be called the lives of civilians in uniforms."
The author served with the Australian 6th Light Horse Regiment and served with them through the war. This book is a fictionalised account of his war and provides the reader with an authentic record of warfare in the trenches of Gallipoli and then following on with the Lighthorsemen during the last great campaign in history of mounted contingents through Palestine, Sinai and onwards to Syria.
The book is in good solid condition but is sunned to the spine ends and edges of the green cloth boards. It is lightly foxed to the page edges but the text pages are clean and the binding secure. The dustwrapper suffers some comprehensive tanning, and suffers small areas of loss to the spine and corners but is now within a protective sleeve.
