Summary
True stories from the frontlines of World War I Published to mark the centenary of the First World War and of the RSL in 2016, this is a collection of 100 true stories of Aussie courage from those who were in the action. The RSL, an Australian icon, has supported Australian veterans since 1916, pledging that their sacrifices will never be forgotten. Now from the annals of the RSL come these compelling yarns and memories, written by diggers for diggers and capturing the impact of war on those who took part. With eyewitness accounts ranging from Gallipoli to the Middle East and Western Front, Australia's Great War is brought to life with humour, pathos and vivid detail. Discover a rare account of the capture of German New Guinea, the first Australian action of the war, and experience the Gallipoli campaign through the diggers' eyes. There's the story of how a Light Horse patrol daringly slipped through advancing Turkish troops to warn their mates of danger, a sapper's-eye view of the battle of Fromelles, how the Melbourne Cup was run on the Western Front - and so much more. Collected here for the first time, these stories are a must-read record of World War I
