Peter's Price:



The bravery, skill and efficiency of the Australian military has earned them international admiration and respect. With an unrivalled record of success across army, navy and air force units, the dogged determination of the men and women who dedicate and even sacrifice their lives in their defence of Australian values is an inspiration.

In A History of the Australian Military, historian Jonathan J. Moore explores the origins of the Australian fighting spirit, from the maries sent across the ocean to Britain’s new colony, to the steadfast diggers of the World Wars, right up to the support lent today in war-torn nations overseas. Despite the odds, the Australian military has become an exemplary service of which Australians can be proud.
