The unknown ANZACs

Michael Caulfield

The real stories of our national legend.

A raw, fresh and utterly authentic portrait of Australians fighting and living on Gallipoli, the Western Front and life behind the lines in the UK, France, Belgium and Egypt.

In this unique portrait of the First World War, writer Michael Caulfield has drawn on the Mitchell Library's unique collection of diaries of Australian soldiers to bring to life, in the voices of the ANZACs themselves, their stories. From Gallipoli to the Western Front, from leave in Cairo to fighting and dying in the mud of Flanders, Michael Caulfield weaves these stories together in an unforgettable portrait of a young country at war.
