The 'Anzac Memorial' is a phenomenal compilation, specifically being a memorial to those who died in the First World War. The Preface states that this book 'is published for the benefit of the New South Wales branch of the Returned Sailor's and Soldiers' Imperial League of Australia, whose object is not only to safeguard the material interests of all returned men and the dependents of the fallen, but to keep alive and to perpetuate that magnificent spirit which was conceived on the outbreak of war ...'

This third edition of the book was published as the 'Peace Edition' just after the war ended in 1919. The main part, which takes up nearly half of the book, is a listing of Officers and Men A.I.F who Died on Service. This section lists thousands of names of those who died doing their duty, listed alphabetically by surname, it also gives their Number, Name and Rank, Unit, Cause of Death and Date of Death.

Other features of the book include the diary entries of a soldier which is definitely stirring reading. The diary starts off on 6 August 1914 when the soldier was called up for service, and continues through till 4 May 1915 when he gets home to Sydney ... The rest of the book consists of poems, stories and memoirs, all contributed by men who were fighting for their country, and in some cases, their lives. Included are over 150 illustrations (photographs, maps and sketches), many of which are photographs of Rolls of Honour boards which companies created as a remembrance to their employees who never made it home.

This is a great resource and a fascinating read for all war historians, and those with ancestors who fought in the Great War.
