In That Rich Earth | Author: Brad Manera
In That Rich Earth tells the stories of service personnel from New South Wales who have fought, sweated and bled on 100 battlefields beyond our shores between 1863 and 2018.
The book complements the soil samples from those battlefields embedded in the floor of the Hall of Service at the Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park, Sydney. More than 102,800 Australians have died in wars and on peacekeeping deployments since colonial times. Almost all lie beneath foreign fields. This book seeks to reveal the stories of those events and the rich earth that witnessed them.
