'Australias Fighting Sons' is a compilation of biographies and photos of many Australian soldiers who fought in World War One, although obviously an incomplete list, this book includes information on nearly 1500 soldiers each with significant detail of their fighting life.
Each entry includes a photograph along with the name of the soldier, where they were born and educated, where and when they enlisted, the places they fought and where and when they came back or, if they died, where they were buried. Often included are other significant details about their war activities and their family.
The book mostly includes people from Western Australia and is therefore a great record for those interested in the first world war and the people who fought in it especially from Western Australia.
