The Gates of Memory: Australian People's Experiences and Memories of Loss and the Great War
This book is an elegant and evocative cultural history that explores the meanings, for ordinary Australians, of loss and memory during the First World War. It tells the moving and often poignant stories of those who lost loved ones, and of the succeeding generations who lived with the memories of these losses. The Gates of Memory invites us to reconsider the places of loss, memory and mourning in Australia's past and makes a significant contribution to our historical knowledge of war and memory.
