Description
 
The part played by Australians in fighting aggression during a century of conflict is a proud chapter in our history. Remote from the world’s storm centres, Australian have nevertheless been quick to respond to the call of duty. They have fought in two World Wars, from the Arctic Circle to the Pacific, from the muddy battlefields of France to the deserts of the Middle East and the jungles of New Guinea--and in the port-War years from Korea and Vietnam to Timor, Afghanistan and Iran--earning a reputation unequalled in the world for spirit and stamina.

This fully revised and expanded edition is illustrated by maps and nearly hundreds of photographs from the nation's archives, vividly describes the Australians’ battles and actions--from the first skirmishes in the Boer War through to the present. It is a moving tribute to the men and women of our armed services and to those on peacekeeping duty in remote corners of the world.
