Combining detailed battle narratives with soldiers' accounts, Peter Pedersen moves from Gallipoli through Palestine to the Western Front, graphically recreating the campaigns of a war in which over 200 000 Australians - two out of every three combatants - were killed or wounded. Illustrated with over 300 photographs and artworks, this book recalls to memory the forgotten heroes, and the bloody campaigns, of the First World War.
All in all, an excellent overview.
