Oxford Companion to Australian Military History by Peter Dennis
Book DescriptionWar has been one of the defining forces in Australian history. Participation in war, whether in the armed forces or on the home front, or in opposition to a particular war, has shaped the lives of successive generations of Australians. The Department of Defence remains one of the largest single consumers of the annual federal budget, and Anzac Day continues to hold a special place in the Australian calendar. This major new edition of the Companion builds on the strength of the previous edition. It provides learned, accessible and up-to-date studies of Australia's varied and colourful military matters - both past and present - by Australia's foremost military scholars. The Companion is the most comprehensive guide to Australia's military history, ranging from the colonial period to the 21st century. It is also supplemented by more than 30 specially commissioned maps. The Companion is highly readable and user-friendly - arranged in a handy A-Z format, the book is thoroughly cross-referenced and indexed to permit easy access to all the information. The Oxford Companion to Australian Military History is the indispensable and vital reference for anyone with an interest in Australian military history.
