Shattered Anzacs book. In part the book takes a critical look at the Government response to support (or lack of) for returned soldier with war related health issues.

Shattered Anzacs book. The book also re-examines the meaning of "war dead" in light of the offically recognised 13,000+ post 1918 war related deaths.

Shattered Anzacs tells the untold story of thousands of Australian families who welcomed home disabled soldiers after the First World War.

Drawing the reader into the emotional interior of family life, it evocatively brings to light the daily struggles of Australia's 90,000 'changed men', and reveals the significant burdens carried by their family members.

He took issue with the notion of the war as tragedy: The Great War was futile and a waste in one sense only – in that the Western Allies in the 1920s and 1930s surrendered much of what had been won in 1914–1918 due to their all-embracing guilt. But this new focus is perhaps best summed up by Marina Larsson’s Shattered Anzacs: Living with the Scars of War. In her article, Twomey concludes that the trauma perspective – this understanding of what war does to people – has been the principal reason for the resurgence of enthusiasm for the Anzac tradition.
