Commemorating the 2015 Anzac Centenary, this volume focusses on the Blackboy Hill WWI military training camp (now a commemorative site), with each chapter researched, written and edited by KSP members.

Much has been written about the tragedy of the War overseas, but what of the training soldiers received before they left Australian shores? What were they told, what were they fed, and what environment did they merge from, which would help forge the legendary spirit of ANZAC? Blackboy Hill is Calling is the first ever comprehensive history of WA's most significant training camp, Blackboy Hill, which trained over 32,000 men. 221 pages : illustrations (some colour), maps, portraits, facsimiles ; 21 x 30 cm. #0217
