The distinctive feature of the book lies in the interdisciplinary views of an array of cultural facets of the Australian experience in the war years.
It covers, in Part I: minorities, diasporas, propaganda, feminisms, medicine, international relations, superstitions and sports: and in Part II; history, memory, mythology, nationalism and even a collaborative look, from Turkey, back at the Allies in the post war restructuring of the Ottoman Empire and the nation building processes in Australia. It is not simply an addition to an already long list of Gallipoli and ANZAC studies, but instead as a multi-dimensional investigation into important questions relating to Australia, Australians and the relationship that existed with the Empire at the time of the Great War (and since).
