Stories of Love & War: From the Collection of the Australian War Memorial

Rebecca Britt

Stories of Love & War offers a window on love in times of war. From the wars of the twentieth century to our current military commitments in the Middle East, the emotional needs of the men and women involved have remained constant. This Australian War Memorial book presents some of the stories of these men and women by exploring the beautiful and evocative objects found among the treasures of the Memorial’s collections. Featuring letters, mementoes, and treasured gifts exchanged by those in love, Stories of Love & War focuses on the human dimension of war.

Soft cover, illustrated throughout, 304 pages.
