Written by Ian Sumner
Illustrated by Graham Turner
This book is number 155 in Osprey’s ‘Warrior’ series.
This book tells the story of the troops from the First Australian Imperial Force and 1st New Zealand Expeditionary Force that came together to form the famous Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, known as the ANZAC infantry. The book begins with their recruitment, training, uniforms and equipment and goes through to their combat experiences in World War I. It examines their daily life in the trenches of Gallipoli. The ANZACs had great discipline and exhibited profound bravery that at times seemed almost reckless which attributed to their almost legendary status.
The book is fantastically illustrated, with numerous unpublished photographs throughout, plus, first-hand contemporary accounts all contribute to your enjoyment. This is an excellent book for the figure collector as a reference book.
