The Australian Army in World War II

Author(s): Mark Johnston

World War 2

The Australian infantry were amongst the Commonwealth's toughest and most widely travelled infantry, serving in campaigns including Syria, Greece, Cyprus, Crete, Libya Egypt, New Guinea, and the South West Pacific. Their fearsome fighting reputation was earned first against the Afrika Corps in the Libyan Desert, and then in the hellish conditions of New Guinea, where they held out against the Japanese invasion. Written by a leading expert on the subject and coupled with previously unpublished photographs from private collections and specially commissioned artwork, this book gives a comprehensive overview of the organization, units, uniforms and insignia of the Australian 'Digger'.
