The Australian Light Horse

by: Roland Perry
published by: Hachette Australia


First raised during the Boer War, the Light Horse played a crucial role in the Middle East during World War 1. Battle-hardened at Gallipoli, by the time they arrived in Palestine they were ready for their critical role in Colonel Lawrence's defeat of the Turks. Under their brilliant commander, Sir Harry Chauvel, they were victorious in the Sinai, Palestine and Syria - culminating in the last great cavalry charge, the taking of Beersheba in 1917.
