Australia is a young country with a short military history, yet out involvement in conflict has helped shape us, as a nation, and how we respond to foreign affairs.
Unlike some countries, Australia has never had to fight for independence or endure invasions on home turf (with the exception of British Colonisation), yet we revere our military past and even commemorate our greatest defeats. Learn about Australians at war, from our earliest conflicts to more recent deployments.
Also included are classroom activities, a quiz and an index. This is a great reference guide for upper primary school students being introduced to the concept of citizenship.
