ANZACS on the Western Front

The Australian War Memorial Battlefield Guide

€ 38.95


What these men did nothing can alter now. The good and the bad, the greatness and smallness of their story will stand. Whatever of glory it contains nothing now can lessen. It rises, as it will always rise, above the mists of ages, a monument to great-hearted men; and, for their nation, a possession for ever.
Charles Bean
