And when Gallipoli was over there was the misery of the European Campaign. Patsy Adam-Smith read over 8000 diaries and letters to write her acclaimed best-seller about the First World War. These are the extraordinary experiences of ordinary men – and they strike to the heart. The Anzacs remains unrivalled as the classic account of Australia's involvement in the First World War.
