Using the diaries and letters of a thousand Australian soldiers, Bill Gammage reconstructs with great sensitivity the valour and the tragedy of their experience. Through it he shows how and why the Great War was to have profound effects on the attitudes and ideals of Australia as a nation. First published in 1974, it has been a widely read classic ever since. This new, illustrated edition brings these remarkable tales of heroism and tragedy to life as never before.
