This latest edition was released late in 2014 and has been expanded to include the latest developments in Iraq and Afghanistan plus a summary of the first conflict involving Australian soldiers – in New Zealand’s Maori wars. The original edition, published in 1991 as Anzacs: Australians at War, was written at a time when Macdougall considered it unlikely Australian forces would ever serve overseas again in numbers! This book has reappeared quite a number of times since that date. This is a nice volume for the bookshelf and very modestly priced. It also came in a limited edition slipcase with The Illustrated History of Australia, also by Macdougall, RRP $49.95. I see the publisher shows the set as being out of stock but Booktopia has it.
