Department of Veterans' Affairs SHOP:9780994477569

In the Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra there are 15 stained-glass windows. Each shows a figure dressed in military uniform, and under each figure is a word which describes a quality displayed by Australians during wartime.

One window features an Australian soldier in the uniform worn at Anzac Cove, alongside a target, bared sword and emblematic spear, symbolic of directness and decisiveness.

This window bears the word Decision.

Decision - stories of leadership in the services is an education resource produced by the Department of Veterans' Affairs in conjunction with the Australian War Memorial. This book explores the stories of twelve Australian leaders. These individuals have come from all ranks and services - some have made one-off decisions that saved lives; others have made a series of decisions over time that influenced the outcome of battles or wars.

Soft cover, illustrations (photographs, maps), 65 pages.
