There has never been a book like Pilgrimagebefore. Journeying through time and place, author Garrie Hutchinson visits the battlefields where Australians have fought and reveals their past and present. We hear the voices of those who fought in World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Korea and East Timor and the stories of the key Australian battles.

We travel to Australia's special places - including Anzac Cove, Tobruk, the Kokoda Track, the Thai-Burma Railway, Long Tan and Maryang San.

Pilgrimageis unique in being a comprehensive and up-to-date travel companion, complete with maps, illustrations and invaluable tips for visitors. Lavishly illustrated with photos from Europe and North Africa, the Middle East and South-East Asia, it also introduces the cemeteries, museums and memorials that commemorate each conflict.

Ideal for armchair travellers and lovers of history, Pilgrimageinvites readers on a voyage of discovery.
