It details the campaigns in North Africa and Syria until the battle of El Alamein, the operations of the 8th Division in Malaya until the Fall of Singapore, and also the lesser expeditionary forces sent by Australia to New Britain, New Ireland, Timor, Ambon, New Caledonia, Nauru and Ocean Island.

Mini-biographies of more than 700 medical officers who took part in these deployments are included. These are arranged in the units in which they served, with notes on the location of these units and the principal operations of their formation.
