Summary
  • Below the shattered ground that separated the British and German infantry on the Western Front in World War I, an unseen and largely unknown war was raging, fought by miners, 'tunnellers' as they were known. They knew at any moment their lives could be extinguished without warning by hundreds of tonnes of collapsed earth and debris. Crumps and Camouflets is the first complete history of Australia's role in the tunnelling war of 1914-1919.
