About this product
- DescriptionDamien Parer was without doubt Australia's greatest war photographer. He helped create the Anzac legend and many, many of our iconic war images are his photographs. He served his apprenticeship as a stills photographer on the famous Chauvel film, Forty Thousand Horsemen, and was appointed Official Photographer covering the Australian fighting in the early days of World War II in Greece and Syria, and Tobruk. His most famous documentary is Kokoda Front Line! , made during the darkest days of the campaign in mid-1942 (it went on to win Australia's first Academy Award). His photographs and films brought the war home to Australians and are w an integral part of our military history. He died in action shot by Japanese machine gun fire, as he filmed an American advance on Peleliu. This is a colourful and authoritative story of a great Australian and includes many of his most iconic photographs.
- Author BiographyNeil McDonald is a well-known film historian and authority on the Kokoda campaign. He collaborated with the best-selling writer Peter Brune on 200 Shots, a pictorial record of the Australian fighting in Papua New Guinea in World War II. He lives in Sydney.
