Walking With the Anzacs aims to become the new essential companion for
Australians visiting the Western Front. Each of the 13 most important
Australian battlefields is covered with descriptions of the battles and
Australia's involvement in it. The book presents well-illustrated
walking tours across the old battlefields.
The tours are designed along easily accessible walking routes and show readers battlefield landmarks that still exist, memorials to the men who fought there and the cemeteries where many of them still lie. In this way the visitor will see the battlefield in much the same way as the original Anzacs did, and gain a greater appreciation of each site's significance. Importantly, the tours are not written for military experts, but for ordinary visitors whose military knowledge may be limited. The tours also focus on the human element of the battle, with quotes revealing the experience of war for the common Aussie digger.
