The Western Front in France and Belgium was the decisive theatre of the First World War. It was there that Australia and New Zealand, fighting between 1916 and 1918 in often unspeakable conditions and at a terrible cost, made their greatest contribution to Germany's defeat. In so doing, they earned the esteem of the world. The experience helped to forge the identities of the two nations and the close relationship between them.

With rare photographs and documents from the Australian War Memorial archive and extensive travel information, ANZACS on The Western Front is the most comprehensive guide to the battlefields of the Western Front. The book covers not just the battles, but the often larger-than-life personalities who took part in them. Following a chronological order from 1916 through 1918, the book will lead you through every major engagement the Australian and New Zealanders fought in and includes tactical considerations and extracts from the personal diaries of soldiers. Going beyond the battlefields, the guide also includes details on relevant cemeteries, museums, memorials and nearby places of interest, as well as general travel information.

ANZACS on The Western Front is the perfect book for anyone who wants to explore the battlefields of the Western Front, either in-person or from the comfort of home. It does far more than show where the lines that generals drew on their maps actually ran on the ground and retrace the footsteps of the men advancing towards them. It is a graphic and wide-ranging record of the Australian and New Zealand achievements, and of the huge sacrifices both nations made, in what is still arguably the most grueling episode in their history.
