Abstract:

The story of World War I in the words of the men who sailed away from Australia to the greatest holocaust the world has ever known. Their simple letters and diaries tell more vividly than any conventional history what life was like in the Great War. These are the only major writings of the Australian working man. From them we learn not only why they went and what they found in that terrifying hell: we grow to understand the gap that separates the 'returned' men from those who stayed behind.
