Description

Australian cinema has effectively popularised the Anzac legend. Just how this has been so is explored in this lucid, clear-eyed study. Here’s a taste: “While European art developed a dominant myth of the horror and meaninglessness of the war,” and some Australian writers interrogated the Anzac myth, “Australia’s many war films are almost entirely devoid of irony.”
