ANZAC Girls

I came across this ANZAC Girls DVD by ACORN at our local library. Based on the book by Peter Rees, who used original journals, letters and historical records to write the story, it follows five nurses from the British Commonwealth countries of Australia and New Zealand during WWI.

The first DVD follows the ANZAC nurses after their arrival in Egypt during the fated Gallipoli campaign and their work taking care of soldiers on the Greek island of Lemnos.

The second DVD follows the WWI fighting in Europe.

With the help of computer generated imagery ANZAC Girls was filmed in Adelaide, Australia.
