In his earlier book Anzac Spirituality, Professor Reynaud overturned the misleading and ahistorical conception of the secular Digger of 1914-18. With typical care and nuance, this second book presents a mass of fresh evidence, together with compelling analysis, of the spiritual beliefs and struggles of the Australian soldier. This is a second fine addition to the burgeoning scholarship on the religious aspects of the First World War.' - Canon Professor Michael Snape, Michael Ramsey Professor of Anglican Studies, Durham University.
