New book, 350 pages. This important anthology reveals the many ways in which going to war has formed a cultural bridge between Australia and the world. From the Sudan in 1885, the Boer War, WW1, WW2, Korea, and Vietnam to Afghanistan in 2001, the connection of war to travel is illustrated in the observations of writers as varied as 'Banjo' Paterson, George Washington, Nancy Wake, John Pilger, Lily Brett and Peter Weir. Selected writings from combatants abroad as well as the reflections of sightseers who travel to foreign battlefields and war sites, this book reveals how the experience of war has both broadened and refined (and sometimes distorted) Australian views of the world. Their lively collection crosses the boundaries between literature, literary criticism, travel writing and cultural commentary.
