Join Peter FitzSimons, bestselling author of Kokoda and Gallipoli, as he tells the extraordinary story of The Last Charge of Australian Light Horse. Their defining World War I battle was at the seemingly unassailable town of Beersheba, in October 1917.
Fought in an ancient land with modern weapons, the men of the Light Horse were trained in sight of the pyramids and drank in the brothels of Cairo. They fought through lands, known to them only as names from the Bible. The Last Charge of the Australian Light Horse traces the hard path of the Light Horse. From the bleakest of starts, deprived of their horses and fighting at Gallipoli, in the tragic Battle of the Nek, to triumph and glory in the desert.
