Summary
"During the First World War, in Melbourne and communities throughout Victoria, schoolchildren knitted socks for the troops serving in Gallipoli, the Middle East and on the Western Front. Their families set up Red Cross branches to support the 91,000 Victorian servicemen and women overseas. Victoria at War records the achievements of the state's soldiers, nurses and their families - including the Whitelaws from Gippsland with six sons enlisting, 'Bert' Jacka, the first Australian to be awarded the Victoria Cross in the First World War, and commander Sir John Monash. By the end of the war 19,000 Victorian service people were dead and 42,000 wounded. Bestselling military historian Michael McKernan tells stories from the home front and battlefield that commemorates the generosity, devotion, sacrifice and spirit of a community pushed towards breaking point" -- from dust jacket
