War memorials in the Australian landscape. After loosing over 60,000 in the First World War, Australians embarked on a remarkable programme of war memorial construction. These memorials, large and small, stand everywhere in the Australian landscape. They express pride, grief and perceptions of God, empire and nation. In this moving and beautifully written book, award winning historian Ken Inglis traces the development of the ANZAC cult, as well as looking at those who rejected it. Fully updated third edition.
Soft cover, illustrated, 656 pages.
