Sir William Glasgow is a fascinating and valuable book that tells the story of this once famous figure: his early service in the Boer War, a career in the AIF which included serving at Gallipoli and distinguished command at the Western Front, and a knighthood and distinguished career in the Commonwealth Government and the diplomatic service. This meticulously researched portrait reveals much about Australia at war and peace in the first half of the 20th century.
