This volume examines the military obligation of government during the first century of the Commonwealth of Australia. During this time, the defense has endured two world wars as well as a series of other military engagements. Although the reputation of military has become a significant factor in the lives and views of Australians, the topic rarely receives public interest. This book explains the complexities of this essential strand of the Commonwealth.
