"Each year on 25 April, the nation stops to remember. This is the history of that day. This beautiful picture book traces the story of Anzac Day through the last century. From those who first stood in silence at dawn, and wore rosemary or poppies for remembrance, to children of today who wear their grandparents' medals, an ever-increasing number in Australia, New Zealand, and around the world pause to remember the first Anzacs landing at Gallipoli" -- Back cover.
