Reviews:

"The Digger's View is an excellent representation of World War 1 as it displays the soldiers' lifestyles. Every page you turn is like opening a door into Australia's history during this time of conflict. The photography is mesmerizing and eye-catching. This book is an original contribution to WWI resources for schools in that the author has added colour to so many, often already familiar, black and white images.”
History Teachers' Association of South Australia Kooringa magazine.
