ANZACS, the Media and the Great War
John F. Williams
The Anzac legend examined as a media-based phenomenon. Using newspaper reports of the Great War from Australian, British, French and German sources, the author reveals how the media operated during the First World War. John Williams shows how the media not only shaped the public's response to war, but also contributed to the popular embrace of a post-war nationalism centred upon the Anzac legend. Soft cover, 302 pages inc. index, illustrations, bibliography, referenced.
