First and foremost: a concise illustrated history of the 1st Battalion, the Royal Australian Regiment, 1945 - 2018

Bob Breen SHOP:9781925675566

First and foremost: a concise illustrated history of the 1st Battalion, the Royal Australian Regiment, 1945 - 2018 has been published to mark 70 years of service as well as the 50th Anniversary of the battle of Coral/Balmoral in Vietnam in 1968, the 25th Anniversary of service in Somalia in 1993 and the 10th anniversary of service in Afghanistan in 2008/09. It covers only the ‘wave tops’ of 70 years of history and mentions only a few individuals, mostly commanding officers or contingent commanders who had ultimate responsibility for operational success or failure; thus, deserving their prominence. 

 

Hard cover, illustrations, 164 pages.
