Description - Shattered Anzacs by Marina Larsson

Shattered Anzacs tells the untold story of thousands of Australian families who welcomed home disabled soldiers after the First World War. It offers a poignant account of the impact of physical injury and shell shock upon returned soldiers, and explores the profound and lasting consequences of disablement for their kin in the 1920s and 1930s. Drawing the reader into the emotional interior of family life, it evocatively brings to light the daily struggles of Australia's 90,000 'changed men', and reveals the significant burdens carried by their family members.
