Great Battles in Australian History
Great Battles in Australian History tells the story of forty remarkable conflicts involving Australians through the eyes of the great heroes who were there. As historian Jonathan King takes us to the battlefields of long ago and then on a rollercoaster-ride right up to the war in Afghanistan, he brings history alive, laying bare the significance of each battle. Despite the heroics and the glory, the devastation that war wreaks is inescapable. This book serves as a tribute to all the Australian servicemen and women who have fought selflessly for their country over the last two centuries.
