From the beaches of Gallipoli to the snows of Afghanistan, Australians have punched above their weight in fighting aggression over a century of conflict around the world.
Expanded to include early conflicts from the Maori Wars, the Sudan and the 1900 Boxer Rebellion in China, Australians at War traces the evolution of a unique military tradition – from the Boer War and Gallipoli to the epic campaigns of the Second World War, and to Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Richly illustrated, with photographs from the nation’s archives, AK Macdougall’s highly praised narrative history of Australia’s experience of war has never been out of print since its first publication in 1991.

‘…a remarkably good and fair-minded history of Australians at war… a well-balanced mixture of text and illustration…’ – Sydney Morning Herald
