Honest History e-Newsletter no. 30, 13 October 2015

Honest History’s e-newsletter has gone out to subscribers and is also on the Honest History website.

Items include the debate around the date of the first Anzac Day; Derek Abbott’s review of Michael Wesley’s Restless Continent; John Myrtle’s new historical resource database covering 1900 to the 1970s; and an anonymous piece from The Triad (1917) on the possibility of persuading the nations of the world to fight their battles in the spacious, warm expanse of Australia’s ‘dead heart’: central Australia as a battleground long before Mad Max.
