Summary
This was first published in 1994, and it seems appropriate to release it now that we have lost so many of the men who fought in Anzac since the war. It deals with the mythology of the war as well as the memories, and how much that mythology has grown and expanded through the years. Thomson (history, Monarsh U.) examines how historians and others become involved in the making of a legend, the politics peculiar to Anzac, the period when the memories of Anzac came of age, how Anzac memories have changed. He closes with a touching chapter about searchinng for Hector Thomas, a soldier, perhaps forgotten, perhaps magnified to many times his real size, at Anzac. Jay Winter provides the foreword.
