Publisher's Summary

Written by celebrated Australian poet, C.J. Dennis, Digger Smith is part of a collection of verse novels following the exploits of everyday Australian characters.     

Digger Smith is an Australian soldier who has fought at Gallipoli. An old mate of Ginger Mick's (The Moods of Ginger Mick), he returns from the war to visit the family of a fellow solder, Jim Flood. Narrated by Bill (the protagonist of The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke and a neighbour of the Floods), the story is woven together with sobering reflections and emotive dynamics expressed within a community of neighbours - friends and families of Australia's soldiers.     

The book was written during World War I and was originally published in 1918.
