about

From the Western Front, to the Burma-Thailand railway, Kokoda to Gallipoli, the essential guide for travellers to the places where Australian armed forces fought overseas. Australians are becoming increasingly fascinated by their military history, and every year greater numbers visit the scenes of the battles commemorated each Anzac Day - Villers-Bretonneux, Long Tan, Kokoda, Gallipoli itself. But what can you learn from visiting a battlefield? And how do you make sure you get the most out of the experience? Peter Stanley, one of Australia's most experienced military historians, a veteran of battlefield research in Borneo and Egypt, Turkey and France, gives wide-ranging and practical hints and tips, including what to take, whether to go alone or in a group, how to stay safe, who to contact before you go, and how to avoid getting sick while you're there. Drawing on his own extensive experience, and that of many of his friends and colleagues, Peter will inspire you to get out of the armchair and walk the ground where Australia's military history was made. '... beautifully written, warm, funny. Moving as well as practical and highly informative. I wish I'd read it before I went!' Craig Deayton, author of Decision at Dernancourt: The 47th Battalion in the Great War
