Australian Army: A History/Grey, Jeffrey/Paper/0195555406/S036-G
Oxford University Press
Australian Centenary History of Defence, Volume 1
This book is a history of the Australian Army as an institution. It is not a history of the army's battles, nor a study of the Australian soldier, nor is it a study of command or of senior commanders. TACHoD vol.1 - The Australian Army is the first history of the army which seeks to explain its development, it is a portrait of the Australian Army with its shortcomings and failures, its triumphs and successes. The business of armies is war, and war is a wretched business. There is much in the story of the Australian Army that is admirable, some things that are noble, and a few which should still have the power to inspire generations of Australians to thank those who have worn the uniform, for the fact that they can avoid first-hand knowledge of the business of war.
