Description
 
Victoria's wartime and military heritage encompasses a vast range of memorials, from the majestic Shrine of Remembrance to local war monuments, honour boards, cemeteries, Avenues of Honour, sculptures, museums and memorabilia. Each memorial commemorates the lives, courage and sacrifice of the local soldiers who served in the various theatres of war around the world, from the First and Second World Wars through to Korea, Vietnam and current peacekeeping operations.

This detailed and accessible guidebook shares the personal stories of the individuals honoured in 250 of Victoria's key war memorials. Arranged geographically, with accompanying maps and photographs, this comprehensive book covers metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, providing a unique insight into our wartime history and the local heroes who fought for our country.
