Victory in Europe 1939 - 1945
Department of Veterans' Affairs
On 8 May 1945, a long and terrible war that cost the lives of thousands of Australians, ended with the unconditional surrender of Germany in Europe. Australia's contribution to the struggle against Nazism and Fascism was made by our sailors, soldiers, airmen and nurses in campaigns fought in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe between 1939 and 1945. This book conveys the story of Australians at war against Germany and Italy. In the many photographs, we see the comradeship, determination and willingness to sacrifice, and the losses experienced by a generation of Australian men and women.
