The ANZAC Spirit

The ANZAC Spirit

The History Channel  |  April 22, 2013

When things are tough - on the sports field, in the face of natural disaster - we summon up The ANZAC Spirit. We know what we mean - the spirit shown by the original ANZACs on Gallipoli, in the Middle East and on the Western Front. But what were the qualities those ANZACs had that came together to be The ANZAC Spirit? They were: mateship, courage, humour, ingenuity, endurance and individualism. Through the resources of the Australian War Memorial - photographs, documents, objects - Neil Pigot tells six stories of the ANZACs, each illustrating one of these qualities and all in combination bringing to life the very best examples of The ANZAC Spirit.
