What is Zero Hour?

Zero Hour is a digital archive for teachers and students studying Australians in the First World War.

Students examine a series of historical documents to evaluate the experiences of Captain Charles Linklater, an Australian soldier who fought at Gallipoli and on the Western Front between 1915 and 1917.

Captain Linklater's documents are presented in a generally chronological sequence. Students can view them in succession, or, use them selectively to focus on specific aspects of his wartime experiences.
