              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.

              The Forgotten explores an often-overlooked part of Australia's rich and diverse history - the service and sacrifice of the Chinese Labour Corps who worked under the British and French on the Western Front during the First World War. It puts the story of the Chinese Labour Corps i...nto the broader history of China's encounters with western European nations since the 1700s. A part of that story includes the large numbers of Chinese people who immigrated to Australia during this period. It was the sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons of these Chinese settlers who volunteered to fight for Australia during the First World War. Those men are the Chinese Anzacs. The Forgotten celebrates the shared history between China and Australia and the combined efforts to promote peace.
