Letters published in the Ballarat Courier during the Great War. In August 1914 the world was swept up in the cataclysmic event known as World War One. Australia was quick to respond to the 'Old Country's' call for help. Our government offered support - 'to the last man, the last shilling'. Men and women from the gold mining township of Ballarat answered the call in unprecedented numbers. They served their country during this time of conflict with humour, distinction and sacrifice. Their stories are revealed in this vibrant collection of letters taken from the town's premier newspaper 'The Courier'. Soft cover, photographs, 384 pages.
