Summary

This definitive encyclopaedia describes all the major battles in which Australians have fought over more than 200 years up-dated to include Australia's involvements in the Middle East and Afghanistan. The Encyclopaedia of Australia's Battles contains concise descriptions of all the major battles that have taken place in Australia or in which Australians have been involved over more than 200 years - from frontier clashes between Aborigines and Europeans, participation by colonial forces in Britain's small wars in the 19th century, through to the World Wars and other conflicts of the 20th century, up to and including involvement in East Timor. Arranged chronologically, over 300 battles are detailed - at sea, on the ground and in the air. A ready reference is provided, listing the date and location of each event, and the main units and commanders involved. Based on studies of historical records and first-hand accounts, and illustrated with explanatory maps, contemporary drawings and photographs of the fighting in progress, a concise and readable account of the course of the battle and its outcome is given. Compiled by one of Australia's leading historians, The Encyclopaedia of Australia's Battles is both an invaluable reference for the military specialist and an illuminating guide for general readers unaware of the breadth and history of the Australian experience of combat.
