Over the years, the experiences of soldiers at war become the stuff of legend: tales of great bravery, battlefield wins, and also the tragic losses and poignant moments. Great ANZAC Storiesgathers iconic stories of Australian experience in the major wars the country has fought: World Wars I and II, Korea and Vietnam, and also tales from the home front. Here we relive the horror of the first day on Gallipoli, acutely aware of what was to come. We admire the courage of the Rats of Tobruk, the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels, and the Vietnam Tunnelers. We remember the nurses from the Vyner Brooke tragedy and some of the most daring men the country has ever produced. With jokes from the front, yarns about the slouch hat, the Lone Pine, and the real origin of the Anzac biscuit, Great ANZAC Storiesalso reveals a distinctively Australian way to remember the nation's years at war.
