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.
