Invitation to Notre Dame Book Launch


1915: Australians at War and on the Home Front

 

Edited by

Daniel Baldino and Mike Brennan

 

Friday 5 May 2017 4pm

The events of 1915 continue to play a central role in the narratives of Australia, New Zealand and Turkey. The campaign continues to generate debate over strategy and planning and failures that resulted in the loss of over 140,000 allied casualties. These losses were to have profound impact on a young nation. During 2015 Australians and New Zealanders commemorated the centenary of Gallipoli with a range of local and national events. For their part, members of the Royal United Services Institute of Western Australia and the staff of Notre Dame University set out to commemorate the centenary of Gallipoli with a Military and Political History Conference, to revisit the aftermath of 1915. The conference went well beyond the events on the Gallipoli peninsula. The papers are on national significance, address complex debates and problems on war, strategy, national identity, politics and ANZAC story. The editors hope this collection of unique voices and sometimes little known or understated stories will help the reader to reflect on why the spirit of ANZAC remains relevant today while highlighting the humanity, sacrifice, courage and compassion of those individuals, past and present, who desire to do their duty for their country - and our gratitude as well.
