The keenly awaited companion volume to 2004's acclaimed Anzac, The Second World War: A Generation of Australian Heroes - An Illustrated History 1939-1945 provides a stunning pictorial record of World War II as fought by our Army Corps, and experienced by everyday Australians. Over 500 rarely seen photos, historic maps, letters and diary entries from the Australian War Memorial archives put an intensely human face on the horrors of war, reminding us that a series of vivid personal experiences were what shaped and defined 1939-45, not an abstract historical event.
