AUSTRALIAN ARMY AT WAR 1899-1975. They have taken part in nine wars and, British troops apart, they have fought in more countries than the soldiers of any other nation.

Click to EnlargeAUSTRALIAN ARMY AT WAR 1899-1975. The British public got their first look at Australian troops in 1897 when 37 men of the New South Wales Lancers attended Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. Officers from Britain and all over the Empire were impressed with the lancers' horsemanship, which won them two of the five gold medals awarded for competition in tournaments among regular, territorial and colonial mounted troops from throughout the Empire. The British people were to get many further views of the Australians, on parade or through the newspapers and later by means of film and television. They have had a brief military history, by world standards, but they have taken part in nine wars and, British troops apart, they have fought in more countries than the soldiers of any other nation.

Each 48-page 7.25" x 9.75" volume includes some 40 illustrations and photographs, and 8-pages of full-color artwork on the title subject.
