A double win for Joan Beaumont and Broken Nation

We are delighted to announce that Joan Beaumont's Broken Nation: Australians in the Great War picked up History prizes at both the Prime Minister's Literary Awards and the Queensland Literary Awards!

Broken Nation took the University of Southern Queensland History Book Award in Queensland, while in the Prime Minister's Literary Awards, Beaumont's book shared the prize for Australian History, with judges saying that the book "takes a fresh approach to a well-known story".

Previously, Broken Nation won the Australian History prize at the NSW Premier's History Awards; it has also been shortlisted for the Western Australian Premier's Book Awards Non-fiction Prize.

To celebrate, for a limited time we're offering the hardback edition of Broken Nation for the paperback price.
