Trench Art: - the Stories Behind the Talismans
"Judy Waugh is a dedicated collector of wartime trench art. Her interest is concentrated on those small personal items which she calls 'talismans in times of trauma', made by soldiers from the limited available materials during wartime. The selection she has assembled is remarkable, and all the more important because she has researched the details of the soldier involved; the so-called, 'man behind the object'. Many of the soldiers whose stories she reveals are Australians, but there are others too. The power of the objects is in the story of the men and women behind them."--Preface.
