Notes

  • Contents indexed selectively.
  • The 1916 edition of the Anzac Memorial focused on the Gallipoli campaign. The 1917 edition differed considerably, and was expanded to include subsequent Anzac campaigns in Palestine and in Western Europe. Most of the poems that appeared in the 1916 edition were omitted from the 1917 and 1919 editions.
