When Australian soldiers returned from the First World War they were offered the chance to settle on 'land fit for heroes'. But in many locations, the land was far from ideal.

In this timely book, based on recently uncovered archives, Bruce Scates and Melanie Oppenheimer map out a deeply personal history of the soldiers' struggle to transition from Anzac to farmer and provider.

The Last Battle examines the environmental challenges, the difficulties presented by the physical and psychological damage many soldiers had sustained during the war, and the vital roles of women and children.

Most family historians with World War I relations, endeavour to find out their every facet of their war records. Forgetting at most, that World War One was for a period of less than 5 years. Of far greater importance was rest their lives. This book provides details of the handicaps experienced by the World War I veterans after their return to Australia.
