Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Discover the triumphs and tragedies of 24 heroic Australasians during World War One and Two. Read the biographies of ANZAC soldiers, as well as Air Force and Navy soldiers, medics, a spy, an ambulance driver and a humanitarian, surviving in battles in England, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific. ANZAC Heroes includes famous soldiers such as New Zealand's double Victoria Cross recipient Charles Upham, and much-honoured Australian Hughie Edwards. You will also find not-so-well known indigenous soldiers, Albert Knight from Australia and Peter Buck from New Zealand, and brave females Olive King, Joice Loch, and New Zealander, Dr Jessie Scott.
