The Men Behind the Myth

The Fighting Leanes of Prospect

by Carol Rosenhain

With meticulous research, Carol Rosenhain examines and questions the validity of Charles Bean’s assertion that the Leane family was the most famous family of soldiers in Australian history.

She evaluates the contribution of its six fathers and five sons and compares their commitment with other families who also helped shape the ANZAC legend.

The book explores the strength of familial bonds, loyalty, the impact of faith, and the realities of lives spent in service to the nation. It is a story of both heartbreak and celebration.
