Remembering the ANZACs

Libraries began documenting the WWI right from the beginning. They also offer books with stories that give insight into war, as a way to understand and learn from history. This board shares some of these titles. To learn about the men and women of the ACT and who served their country in such situations, you can search, browse and contribute to the ACT Memorial database www.memorial.act.gov.au or visit the ACT Memorial in person on London Circuit, Civic, opposite Civic Square in Canberra.
