Australian War Memorial: treasures from a century of collecting

SHOP:9781742660127

The Australian War Memorial is one of Australia’s most iconic institutions. This outstanding new book tells the story of the Memorial and its National Collection, one of the most significant collections of military history in the world. First-hand knowledge of wars may fade over time, but the collection – objects from the battlefield, soldiers’ diaries and letters, photographs of moments which would otherwise be lost – ensures that the stories live on. Lavishly illustrated with Collection images and specially commissioned photography, Australian War Memorial: treasures from a century of collecting is written by Nola Anderson, the Memorial's former Acting Director.

Hard cover, illustrated throughout, 624 pages.
