'In researching her widely-acclaimed best-seller about the Great War, Patsy Adam-Smith read over eight thousand diaries and letters and interviewed hundreds of ex-servicemen and their families. Soldiers sought her out to tell why they went, what they saw and how they felt about the great holocaust. Their simple accounts are more vivid than any novel; seventy years have not dimmed memories of lost comrades or the horrors of war. The Anzacs trikes to the heart.'
