Summary "As well as providing a detailed chronological narrative of the wars in which Australia has been involved, this revised and updated history discusses the evolution of defence policy in peace and war, and the impact of war and military service on civilian society. It maps the development of the Australian armed forces as institutions and the relationship of military policy to government. It covers the major theatres of war in which Australia has engaged - from Gallipoli to Afghanistan and Iraq. The author also examines armed conflict that has taken place on Australian soil between indigenous Australians and European settlers. In addition, the book considers how national security and defence policy is being shaped at the beginning of the 21st century in a rapidly changing world."--BOOK JACKET.
