Anzacs at War
When the ANZACs landed at Gallipoli in 1915 they had no idea that they had taken their first steps in creating what would become the Australian and New Zealand national character and a legend that would forever define them. "ANZACS at War" explores the vital role the ANZACs played in the major conflicts of the twentieth century and beyond, beginning with their heroism in the First World War and continuing through the Second World War, Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf War to the present century's War on Terror. Featuring at least 15 items of facsimile memorabilia, it includes: secret memos and official orders; diaries and letters; and, battlefield maps.
