Summary

Almost hidden within religious buildings, hospitals, school chapels and civic buildings, stained-glass windows tell of Australians at war.<br/><br/>Bronwyn Hughes focuses on commemorative stained glass—an overlooked art form—describing its rich artistic and architectural heritage and the artists and firms who created it. Memorial stained glass serves to depict and illuminate the men and women who fought and died for their faith and their country. It has a tragic beauty.
