1 Charles Bean : Man, Myth, Legacy. Edited by Peter Stanley Martin Crotty , 2018 single work review
— Appears in: Australian Journal of Politics & History , March vol. 64 no. 1 2018; (p. 145-146)

'There can be no doubt about the centrality of C.E.W. Bean to Australia’s commemoration and understanding of the First World War experience. Bean, the official war correspondent, sent back numerous despatches from Gallipoli and France, often from very close to the front lines. He edited The Anzac Book published in 1916, was a driving force behind the creation of the Australian War Records Section and the Australian War Memorial, and oversaw and wrote much of the twelve-volume official history. Whether he “effectively created” the Anzac legend — as Peter Stanley suggests — is perhaps contestable, but he did give it much of its literary and monumental shape. ' (Introduction)

1 The Sufferings of So and So : Hackneyed Perennials of Anzac Mythmaking Martin Crotty , 2018 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , March no. 399 2018; (p. 56-57)

'Australia’s role in the war against the Ottoman Empire from 1916 to 1918 is much less widely understood than its contribution to the doomed campaign in the Dardanelles or the muddy slog on the Western Front. It is one aspect of Australia’s World War I that has not been overwritten by historians (loosely termed), and thus offers Jonathan King considerable scope to make a meaningful contribution to Australia’s popular understanding of World War I. Unfortunately and unsurprisingly given how much pulp history the centenary of World War I has generated, the result is farcical.'  (Introduction)
