NEW BOOK THE FORGOTTEN BY WILL DAVIES WITH CONTRIBUTIONS FROM ALBERT WONG IS OUT NOW!



UNTOLD TRUE STORY OF CHINESE ANZACS FINALLY TOLD

THE FORGOTTEN REMEMBERED

# NEW BOOK REMEMBERS THE FORGOTTEN ON ANZAC DAY

# UNTOLD TRUE STORY OF CHINESE ANZACS FINALLY TOLD

# HOW CHINA HELPED AUSTRALIA WIN WORLD WAR 1

New book THE FORGOTTEN by historian Dr Will Davies with contributions from high profile businessman Albert Wong is out now and tells the story of the forgotten and largely ignored members of the Chinese Labour Corps in the First World War, who worked tirelessly for the British and French armies, but who received little pay, endured severe living conditions and died as a result of starvation, influenza and neglect.

Running parallel to this in THE FORGOTTEN is the unknown story of those Chinese Anzac soldiers, unsung heroes, men of Chinese-Australian heritage who, despite racism, marginalisation and bigotry, stepped forward to enlist and die for Australia so far from home.

This book is offered in the hope that, by telling their story, we might shed new light on a forgotten and unknown chapter of history, and in the process, remember and celebrate their part in the final victory. The Forgotten celebrates the shared history between China and Australia and the combined efforts to promote peace. The Governor General David Hurley has written the forward  for the book.

The Forgotten is published by Wilkinson Publishing as a dual English and Chinese language edition in the one book and retails for $29.99 from wilkinsonpublishing.com.au and booktopia.com.au
