When the Anzac (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) forces landed at Gallipoli in 1915 they had no idea that they had taken their first steps in creating what would become known as the Australian and New Zealand national character and a legend that would forever define them. Through over 15 beautifully recreated facsimile documents, including maps, diaries, official reports, telegrams and personal letters, Anzacs at War shows why, more than any other fighting force in history, Anzacs have been praised for their courage, endurance, skill, good humour and comradeship. Beginning with the bloody battles of the First World War, and continuing through the Second World War, Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf War, up to the present century's War on Terror, this book explores how bitter conflicts shaped the national character and reveals the vital nature of the Anzacs' role in all the major conflicts of the 20th century and beyond.
