Event Details

Join pre-eminent historian, writer, reviewer and radio commentator, Michael McKernan, for a discussion about Victoria’s experience during the First World War. During WWI, families throughout Victoria rallied behind the war effort and many Red Cross branches were set up to support the 91,000 Victorian servicemen and women overseas. By the end of the war, 19,000 Victorians had been killed and 42,000 wounded. Join Michael McKernan as he discusses his new book Victoria at War 1914-1918 and speaks of both devastating and inspiring stories. His book looks at Edwardian Melbourne through the prism of grief and shows how war destroyed the community's confidence and delight.
