Honour their spirit

Australian War Memorial SHOP:9781921353215

Honour their spirit explores the impact and legacy of conflict on Australia. Developed as a companion to the Australian War Memorial exhibition After the War, the publication presents the personal and collective experiences of Australians in the aftermath of war.

Spanning from the First World War through to recent conflicts, the publication tells stories of victory and loss; celebration and grief; despair and hope. The impact on the men and women of Australia has resulted in an enduring legacy of commemoration and remembrance.

Presented as a series of essays, each story is highlighted by material held predominantly within the Australian War Memorial's national collection, including artworks, photographs, and personal and official records. Honour their spirit also documents the Australian War Memorial's contribution to the commemoration of the Centenary of the First World War.


Soft cover, illustrations, 120 pages.
