Front Cover
UNSW Press, 2003 - History - 318 pages
By 1914 Australia’s German immigrants were well-regarded in their communities and made up (after Irish and Scots) the fourth-largest white ethnic community in Australia. This thoroughly readable history, with lively anecdotal and personal material, traces the experiences of those young German Australian immigrants who enlisted for service in the First World War, and the many difficulties they faced.
