    DescriptionThe Australian War Memorial in Canberra is one of Australia's most iconic institutions. Originally conceived during the turbulent years of the First World War, it was opened in 1941 and has grown to become one of the most important symbols of national identity. The Collection Book tells the story of the Memorial and the National Collection - one of the most significant collections of military history in the world. From the battlefields of Europe to peacekeeping operations and the current conflicts in the Middle East, the artefacts of almost a century of collecting are brought to life through the rich personal stories behind them. With specially commissioned photography, The Collection Book is a commemoration to all those who have served Australia and a tribute to the enduring qualities that forged its identity.
