Initiated by Dr Brendan Nelson, Director of the Australian War Memorial, and recorded at Rancom St Studios in Sydney with Garth Porter (Producer); the same team that worked on the highest selling album of 2015, Spirit of the Anzacs. This album commemorates and honours servicemen and women and coincides with the 100-year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice on 11th November 1918, the end of The Great War. The album spans from Gallipoli and Passchendaele, to the sinking of HMAS Canberra in 1942 in the waters off Savo Island, to the Battle of Long Tan in a rubber plantation in Vietnam, and the blurred and dusty battle lines of Afghanistan.
The songs have been brought to life by the contributions of talented and generous artists who have all donated their royalties to veteran services under the direction of the Australian War Memorial. These proceeds will be fully committed to support initiatives, exhibitions and programs in support of young veterans and their families. Artists featured include Lee Kernaghan, Wes Carr, John Schumann, Glen Shorrock, The Wolfe Brothers, Lance Corporal Elizabeth Smith, Darren Percival, Garth Porter, The Royal Australian Navy Band, Sisters In Arms, Fred Smith.
