NEWS FEATURE: GENERAL COX PAYS TRIBUTE TO RETIRED GENERAL BURROWS AT BOOK LAUNCH

// 05 DECEMBER 2013 //

DURING his visit to lead the Australia Southern Territory's commissioning celebrations, General André Cox also assisted with the launch of the book The People’s General – A Tribute to General Eva Burrows at Melbourne Project 614 Corps, where Retired General Burrows is a soldier.

General Cox spoke of his admiration for the retired international leader before presenting her with a copy of the new book – to a rousing ovation from the congregation.

The book, released by Salvo Publishing, marks the 20th year since General Burrows’s retirement from active service. It includes more than 200 photos from throughout her life – including many previously unpublished images, some from the retired General's private collection – as well as a new 60,000-word interview. 

Launching the book, national Editor-in-Chief Captain Mal Davies explained: ‘The interview was filmed over three days by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia for a website called Australian Biography that features the stories of prominent Australians. We obtained permission to edit the original transcript of the interview and it is the most intimate and insightful interview with General Burrows ever completed.’

The People’s General can be ordered from www.salvationarmy.org.au/supplies
