Rev. Mary Anneeta Mann, Ph.D., was born in Rockhampton, Australia. Her father was an original Anzac, having fought on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. He was severely injured in France in 1916 and 1917 but remained in the service until the armistice. Half of the eligible young men in Australia enlisted in that war and suffered enormous losses, but those who returned made up a significant portion of the generation that governed Australia between the two World Wars. They formed the Returned Soldiers’ League, taking care of their veterans and particularly the children of those who did not return. These were called Legacy children. It was the War to End All Wars and most of the country believed it, marching every Anzac Day and celebrating the heroism of those who gave their lives on foreign soil defending liberty for all. Mary was a child of this era but before her ninth birthday, with the onset of the Second World War she wrote her first poem and dedicated herself to finding out ‘why war’ and then finding out how to end it. The play ANZAC was written in the 1960s and later updated. Her other books include HUBRIS, the Construction of Tragedy, based upon Aristotle’s Poetics and his Science of Being Altogether, Poems of Woman, TWO FAMILY PLAYS, Maria and the Comet and The Round Table and Thugun and Natasha, a drama with rap, for youth and family audiences. She edited Mentoring Poems and co-authored Science and Spirituality. Anzac to Understanding contains this play as well as documentation for it and original war letters . The philosophical quest culminated in There Are No Enemies, A Practical Philosophy of Life, all available online and at her website www.maryanneetamann.com. Mary is listed in World Wide Who’s Who and the Marquis Who’s Who in the World.
