Ordinary name - extraordinary stories.
Digger Smith and Australia’s Great War takes as its subject Australians with the surname of Smith, who experienced (and in many cases died in) the Great War. There were Smiths in every unit of the Australian Imperial Force, in virtually every rank, very job including doctor, chaplain, pilot and nurse. Author and Historian, Peter Stanley tells their stories in a representative way which looks at many key experiences of the war, not just for the Smith's, but for many Australians.
