Publishers Description: When Hugo Throssell joined the Light Horse during the First World War, he symbolised the Australian nation at that time: full of youth, vigour, courage and idealism. And when he killed himself in 1933, he remained as emblematic to his country as he'd been in those heady days of 1914 - his youth and future forever darkened by the triumph and tragedy of war. John Hamilton has written an extraordinary account of Throssell's life: winner of the Victoria Cross, due to his bravery on Gallipoli; husband to novelist and committed socialist Katharine Susannah Pritchard; and fallen hero, thanks to his public denunciation of the war. The Price of Valour details the battles in Gallipoli and Palestine, and a provides a compassionate and intimate portrait of a real Australian hero.
