Stories of ordinary Australians doing extraordinary things in time of war. Military historians and enthusiasts will learn nothing new from this book. These stories are not filled with dates, places, names and statistics. They are representative of the war experiences of the forebears of today's ordinary Australians; those who left their homes and families to fight a war halfway round the world, and who, by their actions, brought this nation to the attention of the world. Paperback, photographs, 274 pages.
