Author(s): Phillip Schuler
Phillip Schuler, alongside C.E.W. Bean, was one of Australia's key First World War correspondents. A soldier as well as a journalist, he died on 23 June 1917 of wounds received at Armentieres. His legacy was Australia in Arms, an extraordinary and evocative account of the Australian Imperial Force and their achievements at Anzac, and the first full published account of Australia's role in the Dardanelles campaign. With detailed and compelling on-the-ground accounts from the scene of battle, Australia in Arms is a vivid read and an important part of Australia's Anzac legacy.
Phillip Schuler volunteered to document the Gallipoli campaign for The Age newspaper during the First World War. He died on the Western Front in 1917 at the age of twenty-eight.
