Welcome to the Special AHS Classics Virtual Issue from Australian Historical Studies on Australia and the First World War.
This Special AHS Classics Virtual Issue highlights the important contribution that Australian Historical Studies has made to our understanding of Australia and the First World War. Drawing on over forty years of scholarship and debate, the volume showcases key articles by some of Australia’s most significant historians of the war and the Anzac tradition that emerged from it. These articles show that the adaptability of the Anzac legend requires investigation and caution in the production of new histories of events a century distant.
Together with an introductory essay by Bart Ziino, this is an indispensable guide for those seeking a deeper understanding of the war and the legend that continues to loom so large in Australian history.
The articles in this virtual special issue are currently free to view until the end of December 2015. To claim your access, simply click on the articles below.
