Australians in World War 1: Home Front

Department of Veterans' Affairs SHOP:9781877007729

This commemorative publication is the fifth and final in the Australians in World War I series. It contains a brief essay on the impact of the First World War on Australian society and more than 100 images.

This publication focuses on the experience of the millions of Australians who lived through the four years of the First World War in their homes and workplaces, rather than in the army or navy. As a newspaper of the time predicted when the war began, every Australian was tested in those years, including those who had never heard a shot fired.

Soft cover, photographs, 135 pages.
