The Price of Valour

by John Hamilton

In The Price of Valour award-winning journalist John Hamilton gives us an extraordinary insight into the life of a real Australian hero, Hugo Throssell.

From the bloody battles of The Nek and Hill 60 during the Gallipoli campaign, where Throssell won a Victoria Cross, to the Great Depression of the 1930s, where his life came to its tragic end, Hamilton has written a rich and vivid portrait of a fearless soldier, a national hero, a born-again socialist, a loving husband and father, and finally a victim of the war’s long and destructive aftermath.
