Summary Australians took part in every arena of the war, and these moving accounts include memories of the campaigns in Europe and Africa: the battles for the Kokoda Trail, New Guinea and the islands: the internment camps of South-East Asia: and the notorious Burma -Thailand Railway. Also included are stories from the men and women who kept things working and supported the war on the home front. This is a remarkable portrait of men, women and children at war
Blood, Sweat and Tears brings together the first-hand accounts of more than seventy-five ordinary Australians who did extraordinary things during World War II. Prisoners of war, airmen, nurses, landgirls, internees, schoolchildren, soldiers, sailors and volunteers of every description share their memories of a time of horror, tragedy, love and excitement
