Australians on the Western Front 1918
David Cameron

Rating: 3 / 5


Britain and the Empire declared war against Germany in August 1914, bringing British Empire countries including Australia into the Great War. 


Australia was a relatively new nation with a population of under five million, and 416,509 young and fit men enlisted to fight in the Middle East and Western Front battlefields, playing a critical role in March and April, 1918. 


Australian biological anthropologist David Cameron addresses their role in this book. Drawing on the diaries and letters of soldiers on the battlefields, together with some excellent photographs, Cameron weaves a thrilling narrative around the campaign’s significant moments, placing the Australians’ actions within the broader strategic context of the war.
