One of the shortest lived and most battle hardened of the 1st Australian Imperial Forces battalions, the 47th was formed in Egypt in 1916 and disbanded two years later having suffered one of the highest casualty rates of any Australian unit. Their story is remarkable for many reasons. Dogged by command and discipline troubles and bled white by the desperate attrition battles of 1916 and 1917, they fought on against a determined and skilful enemy in battles where the fortunes of war seemed stacked against them at every turn. Not only did they have the misfortune to be called into some of the A.I.F.s most costly campaigns, chance often found them in the worst places within those battles. Though their story is one of almost unrelieved tragedy, it is also story of remarkable courage, endurance and heroism. It is the story of the 1st A.I.F. itself - punished, beaten, sometimes reviled for their indiscipline, they fought on - fewer, leaner and harder - until final victory was won. And at its end, in an extraordinary gesture of mateship, the remnants of the 47th Battalion reunited. Having been scattered to other units after their disbandment, the survivors gathered in Belgium for one last photo together. Only 73 remained.

A Gritty Personal Story of Self-Discovery and Recovery In "The Battle-Scarred Journey" Kim Wheeler recounts his journey from the deep emotional pain of an abandoned and abused childhood, through challenges from severe physical injuries, drug and alcohol abuse, and ultimately to wholeness and healing with the help of a caring psychiatrist. He tells his story with passion, brutal honesty, and often humor -- hoping that others may find inspiration to face battles in their own journeys of self-discovery and recovery. Kim Wheeler was abandoned by his birth mother when he was born at University College Hospital, London in 1954. He lived in a children's home until he was adopted at the age of six. His adoptive parents were emotionally distant, and his mother sometimes abused him verbally and physically. Happier times came at boarding school, but still there were emotional abuses due mainly to skin color, unknown parentage, and learning disabilities. Over the next thirty years Kim suffered from several physical injuries, survived meningitis, and, finally disabled with an incurable spine injury, was ordered to cease all types of manual work. Along the way he became dependent on prescription pain killers and abused illegal drugs and alcohol for years. Mental health issues and a complete breakdown soon ensued. Writing poems has helped Kim with his inner healing, and he shares with readers many of his verses about his darkest moments of vulnerability and psychological wounding. 'Today, ' Kim says, 'I am a free and content man who enjoys nothing more than his rescue dogs, positive attitude, freedom.

In this revealing and beautifully written memoir, Mark Obama Ndesandjo, recounts his complex relationship with his older half-brother, President Barack Obama, including their first meeting in Kenya over twenty years ago. The book also offers the author's inspiring personal story about identity and multiculturalism. Rare family photos add to the book's personal nature as does the intense recounting of domestic violence in the home of Barack Obama Sr.’s and his third wife, Ruth Baker, Mark’s Jewish-American mother. The book also attempts to set the records straight on several points of the president’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father. In its connection to President Obama, Mark's story takes on an even greater significance because it becomes all the more directly, a story of American identity and a window into the complex figure of the father they share, Barack Obama Sr., their roots in Kenya, their multicultural identities, and their relationships with America.
