Australian identities recount stories handed down to them by family members who served in the Pacific battle. Stories by Erika Heynatz, Peter Cosgrove, Brett Kirk, Laura Dundovic, Kate Fitzpatrick and Damien Richardson.
To mark the 90th anniversary of the Western Front we tell the Australian story for the first time. Unlike the defeat at Gallipoli, Australians were very effective and largely responsible for Winning World War I on the Western Front. Five times more Australians were killed on the Western Front than in Gallipoli. Based on the book by author Dr Jonathan King, this exclusive local production airs as part of The History Channel's Remembrance Day line-up.
