Anzac Labour explores the horror, frustration and exhaustion surrounding working life in the Australian Imperial Force during the First World War. Based on letters and diaries of Australian soldiers, it traces the history of work and workplace cultures through Australia, the shores of Gallipoli, the fields of France and Belgium, and the Near East.

Nathan Wise is Lecturer in the School of Humanities at the University of New England (UNE), Australia. His research focuses upon Australian labour, cultural and military history, particularly during the First World War and the Second World War.


Wise's book makes a useful contribution towards the erosion of the tendency towards ancestor worship of Australian soldiers of the Great War, which is too commonly the dominant theme in popular narratives; and for this it is to be welcomed. (Jeffrey Grey, Labour History, May, 2015)
