Russian Anzacs in Australian History

Elena Govor has given voice to a part of Australian cultural history that until now has been silent. Extraordinarily, it was men born in the former Russian Empire that constituted the most numerous group in the First Australian Imperial Force, after those of Anglo or Celtic background - almost one thousand Russian Anzacs. This book is a history of Russian multiethnic communities in Australia, and passionately rediscovers ties, formerly severed, between the children and grandchildren of Russian Anzacs and their Russian past.
