Description
 
The Encyclopedia of Australia's Battles' contains concise descriptions of all the major battles that have taken place in Australia or in which Australians have been involved over more than 200 years - from frontier clashes between Aborigines and Europeans, participations by colonial forces in Britain's small wars in the 19th century, through to the World Wars and other conflict of the 20th century, up to and including involvement in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Arranged chronologically, over 300 battles are detailed - at sea, on the ground and in the air. A ready reference is provided, listing the date and location of each event, and the main units and commanders involved. Based on studies of historical records and first-hand accounts, and illustrated with explanatory maps, contemporary drawings and photographs of the fighting in progress, a concise and readable account of the course of the battls and their outcomes are given.

Compiled by one of Australia's leading historians, 'The Encyclopaedia of Australia's Battles' is both an invaluable reference for the military specialist and an illuminating guide for general readers unaware of the breadth of the Australian experience of combat.

Review: 'This volume deserves a place with the other standard encyclopaedia Australian keep on their shelves. It will be a valued traveling companion for visitors to the battlefields of Europe, the Middle East and the Pacific' - Professor Robert O'Neill, Oxford
