Publisher Description

Smiths were among the first men to land at Gallipoli. Smiths fought and died at Pozières, Bullecourt and Passchendaele. Smiths were wounded – and treated by doctors and nurses named Smith. At home, Smiths penned patriotic doggerel and spoke vociferously against conscription. There was Grace Cossington Smith and her iconic painting The Sock Knitter, and Victor Smith, who designed a guided missile in his dad’s workshop in suburban Brisbane. Australia’s Smiths included the AIF’s senior policeman, a Jewish VC, and the war’s most famous Australian aviators. They and thousands of more humble Smiths reflect the hopes and fears, the tragedies and the triumph of Australia in the Great War.
