About this product
- DescriptionAnzac Memories was first published to acclaim in 1994 (OUP), and has achieved international rewn for its pioneering contribution to the study of war memory and mythology. In this new edition Alistair Thomson explores how the Anzac legend has transformed over the past quarter century, how a 'post-memory' of the Great War creates new challenges and opportunities for making sense of the national past, and how veterans' war memories can still challenge and complicate national mythologies. He returns to a family war history that he could t write about twenty years ago because of the stigma of war and mental illness, and he uses newly-released Repatriation files to question his own earlier account of veterans post-war lives and memories and to think afresh about war and memory.
