ANZAC Day is named after the day the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed at Gallipoli in World War 1—the 25th of April 1915.
In Australia and New Zealand the day is commemorated each year and has become one of our most important national days. It’s a day replete with stories of valour, courage, kindness, and good natured shenanigans.
These five are by no means the only lovely books to read around Anzac Day but they are exceptional. Not just for Anzac Day, they're wonderful for any time and for any country. You might also like to visit our War & Peace category for a growing list of other thought-provokers.
