Meticulously researched and written by the Head of Research at the Australian War Memorial, Dr Peter Pedersen, this landmark publication guides readers chronologically through the battles in which Australians and New Zealanders fought on the Western Front from 1916-1918. Lavishly illustrated in vibrant colour, with fascinating images from the Australian War Memorial archive as well as new panoramic location shots to provide an in situ perspective for the reader, each chapter covers the important tactical milestones passed along the way and explains how the Australian Imperial Force and the New Zealand Expeditionary Force evolved to meet the war's changing demands.
Dr Peter Pedersen is Head of the Research Centre at the Australian War Memorial and one of Australia's leading military historians. He has written seven books on Australia in the First World War and led many battlefield tours to the Western Front. He was magnificently assisted in the preparation of this guide by Brigadier Chris Roberts AM, CSC (Retd).
