Call Number: 940.3 SCA
Publication Date: 2016-02-01
There has been no shortage of heroic stories over the course of the Anzac Centenary- stories of courage and sacrifice, fortitude and endurance, mateship and resolve. But a hundred years on, there is a need for other stories as well - the stories too often marginalised in favour of nation-building narratives. World War One- a history in 100 stories remembers not just the men and women who lost their lives during the battles of WWI, but those who returned home as well- the gassed, the crippled, the insane - all those irreparably damaged by war. Drawn from a unique collection of sources, including repatriation files, these heartbreaking and deeply personal stories reveal a broken and suffering generation - gentle men driven to violence, mothers sent insane with grief, the hopelessness of rehabilitation and the quiet, pervasive sadness of loss.
