Description - And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda by Eric Bogle

SHORT-LISTED: CBCA Picture Book of the Year, 2016

But the band played 'Waltzing Matilda' when we stopped to bury our slain. We buried ours, and the Turks buried theirs; then we started all over again.

Eric Bogle's famous and familiar Australian song about the Battle of Gallipoli explores the futility of war with haunting power. Now Bruce Whatley's evocative illustrations bring a heart-rending sense of reality to the tale.

A timely story for every generation to share.
