And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda Book Trailer

The iconic song about the Battle of Gallipoli, written by Eric Bogle in 1972 at the height of the anti-war movement. And now Bruce Whatley’s evocative illustrations bring a heart-rending sense of reality to the tale.
This book trailer is particularly poignant for me because I am one of many who lost a relative to war. My work-in-progress has a backdrop of WW1 and while my story is not set on the battlefield but on the homefront this video is one I will watch to give me inspiration.
It’s lovely to see the younger generation embracing Anzac Day by visiting the Gallipoli Peninsular and also the many who attended services held around Australia yesterday.
