Afghanistan: the Australian story DVD

Australian War Memorial SHOP:101017309

Afghanistan and the Middle East are now forever part of Australia's national story.

Australia's mission was clear: to combat international terrorism, to help stabilise Afghanistan, and to support Australia's international alliances. But a mission statement cannot reveal the challenges, the successes, and the comradeship of the Australian men and women who pursue it. Nor does it express the joys and heartbreaks, the loneliness and the dedication, of those who wait at home.
 
Some of these experiences, set against the backdrop of a modern war, are told in the film by current and former service personnel and their families.

Rated M, PAL, duration 60 minutes plus bonus disc of interviews, 2 DVD set.
