Beyond combat: Australian military life off the battlefield

Edited by Tristan Moss and Tom Richardson SHOP:9781742235905

War is only a small part of military life. Uniformed men and women spend the vast majority of their time away from combat, training, receiving medical attention, burying the dead and undertaking the myriad tasks of survival in an operational zone.

Beyond Combat explores how the military manages its ‘other’ roles, as well as the experiences of the servicemen and women themselves. With contributions from Christina Twomey, Noah Riseman, Shirleene Robinson and Major Clare O’Neill, among others, Beyond Combat is a ground-breaking examination of life beyond the frontline.
