As Australia's largest wartime port, Fremantle played a unique role in the nation's story. Featuring extraordinary photographs, this volume is a fascinating account of our homefront during the Boer War, World War I, World War II and more. It records our history of departure and reunion, victory and celebration, grief and loss, and dissent and activism.
