Comments: This beautifully illustrated book is a moving pictorial record of World War I as experienced by the Anzacs, the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

Over 500 rarely seen photos, historic maps, letters and diaries from the Australian War Memorial archives, as well as detailed captions and illustrated timelines bring to life the Anzac story as experienced by the ordinary soldier. Additional perspectives are gained from official war historian Charles Bean, journalist Keith Murdoch, commanding officer at Gallipoli Lt, General Sir William Birdwood and Prime Minister William Hughes.

Anzac conveys not only the horrors of war and the hardships experienced by the Anzacs, but also the dignity, bravery, valour and humanity they came to embody.
