The excessive brutality and ferocity of the hand-to-hand fighting
earned the Battle of Bullecourt the name Blood Tub and made it one of the
bloodiest battles of World War I. In The Blood Tub, Jonathan Walker
re-examines the controversial role of Gen. Sir Hubert Gough together with a
study of Anglo-Australian rivalry, shattering the myth of a unified Anzac
Command. Using unpublished documents and a wealth of eyewitness accounts,
he confirms the terror rather than the thrill of a battle that must rank as
one of the most savage contests of World War I.
