The Preface to this comprehensive record of Tasmanians in the First World War states that it 'aims at giving to the people of this generation and of generations yet to come an idea of what Tasmanian soldiers did and endured and of the less glorious but very useful work done by thousands of men and women who remained at home ....'
Family and local historians with Tasmanian interests are the "generations yet to come" who will find this an immensely useful record - not only for the names and details given, but for the historical accounts of the various units and fields of service.
