Overview

The Blood Tub: General Gough and the Battle of Bullecourt 1917 by Jonathan Walker

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 Using unpublished documents and a wealth of eyewitness accounts, he confirms the terror rather than the thrill of a battle that must rank as one of the most savage contests of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. About the Author
