AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In 1967 the historian Geoffrey Searl conjured a superb description of the overblown nationalistic hyperbole that had attached, limpet-like, to Anzac during his postwar youth: Anzackery. What a word for the bombastic myth making that has culturally amplified and enshrined Australia's part in the botched invasion and attempted occupation of a small finger of the Ottoman Empire on 25 April 1915.
