Great War Diary FB

The Great War Diary is a ground-breaking project that tells the remarkable story of Australia in the Great War. Researched and written by a team of leading Australian historians and writers, the Great War Diary shares the journey of Australia’s diggers during 1914-1918, from Gallipoli to the Western Front. This is the diggers’ story like it has never been told before

The Great War Diary has now been produced in digital formats, including eBook and audiobook.

The Great War Diary eBook brings the remarkable story of Australia in the Great War to a global audience. Available to download as an illustrated digital edition across a variety of reading devices, take John Murray’s diary with you wherever you go – on your phone, tablet or e-reader.

Become immersed in Scot Mcann’s riveting reading of the Great War Diary Audiobook. Now, for the first time, you can listen to John Murray as he narrates his experiences of combat, his thoughts on the war, and his longing for home – from the dry winds of Palestine to the muddy quagmire of the Western Front. It is now available from all leading audiobook platforms including Audible, Amazon and your iOS or Google devices.

The Great War Diary is also available in a collectible print format. Each instalment of the collectible diary brings history to life through authentic inclusions such as maps, newspaper cuttings and postcards. Every instalment also contains six Memory Pennies inspired by the Australian copper pennies of yesteryear.

Like the Bears to School program, the Great War Diary is a project conceived and developed by Australia in the Great War with the aim of promoting history in our community. For the past five years AGW has played a leading part in promoting the Centenary of Anzac and making this milestone event accessible to all Australians. During this time AGW has been privileged to support our veterans through charities such as Soldier On, RSL, Legacy, Nashos. To date over $2 million has been raised by charities through product sales and a further $400,000 donated directly to Soldier On.
