              It was 1914 when Sister Alice Ross-King left Australia for the war. Nursing was her passion - all she had ever wanted to do. But Alice couldn't have imagined what she would see. She served four long years and was brave, humble and endlessly compassionate. Using extracts from Alic...e's actual diaries kept in the Australian War Memorial, this story captures the danger, the heartache and the history of the young nurse who would one day become the most decorated woman in Australia.

              Long before Bletchley Park, Australia had its own version of Enigma. The untold story of how a former Australian headmaster and his mostly female team cracked one of Germany's most complex codes, paving the way for the greatest Allied naval victory of World War I. On 11 August 19...14, just days after war had been declared, Australian Captain J.T. Richards boarded the SS Hobart in Port Phillip, Melbourne, suspecting the German merchant vessel fleeing Australia was carrying more than wool and wheat. He was right. After hiding under a bed for six hours and holding a German officer at gunpoint, Richards seized a top-secret naval codebook - the first to be obtained by any Allied force. The fledgling Australian Navy had an opportunity to immediately change the course of the war. But what exactly had they found? Enter the ANZAC codebreakers ... Recruited by savvy top brass, maths whizz and German speaker Frederick Wheatley worked night and day to fathom the basic principles of the code and start tracking the powerful German Pacific Fleet led by the brilliant and dashing Graf Maximilian von Spee. Soon Melbourne was a hub of international Allied intelligence, and the British Royal Navy - following a disastrous naval defeat at Coronel, off Chile, on 1 November - was sending all intercepted messages to Wheatley for decryption. In a dramatic race to neutralise the threat in the Pacific, the Anzac team grappled with the Germans' latest ingenious modifications to the code, finally unlocking all its secrets and providing vital information that set up a pivotal Allied victory in the Falkland Islands. A thrilling, fast-paced and thoroughly modern telling of one of Australia's greatest unknown military triumphs, written by our number-one true-crime writer. Welcome to ANZAC Codebreakers.

              Every year there are special days when we remember all those who have fought in the past to keep Australia free and those who still fight today to keep us safe. On 25 April - Anzac Day - and on 11 November - Remembrance Day - we stop to think about those people and how much they ...have done for us. Anzac Day reminds us that, as Australians, we are proud of the Anzac spirit which has helped shape our traditions, our culture, and who we are. On Remembrance Day we honour all those who gave up so much for their country, especially those who lost their lives. Australia Remembers presents a detailed explanation of the origins and traditions of Anzac Day and Remembrance Day, exploring both their connections and significance to young Australians today. The colourful traditions and symbols of these special days are described in language that is easily accessible to younger readers, helping them to understand what these mean and how important it is to remember those Australians who have fought for their country and those who keep us safe today. Australia Remembers is designed to ensure that the next generation shares the history and traditions of these important occasions.
