"An exhibition at the National Museum of Australia, 3 April 2015 to 11 October 2015" "Exhibition curated and text written by Joanne Bach and Jono Lineen" "This book is a companion to the exhibition of the same name, produced by the National Museum of Australia to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. Through rarely seen objects and images, both the book and the exhibition tell 23 personal stories that illuminate the choices, opportunities and challenges Australians faced during the war. The people we meet range from the famous, such as Robert Menzies, Billy Hughes and May Gibbs, to everyday Australians including volunteer nurses, activists, fundraisers and the bereaved. 'The home front : Australia during the First World War' explores the pride, sorrow, passion, wonder and joy experienced by those far from the battlefields." -- book cover.
