4to, IV, 234pp. Glossy pictorial hardcover in royal blue with four diggers in khaki and a bright red title on front cover and spine with an author photo on the rear, explaining his background and the detail of the book, .in excellent condition with very minor scuffing and bruising of corners and no d/w as published, text is also as-new with no random markings or additions and book is overall near-fine. This is the definitive overview of the songs that the Australian serviceman and his female counter-part, sang in the eleven wars that Australia has been involved in – from the Maori Wars to the Gulf War. The songs are the genuine item , coming from the creative mind of the average Australian rather than any professional song-writer. In themselves these songs are said to be ‘a living tribute to the men and women who worked and fought for Australia and Peace.’. Also adorned by multiple b/w cartoons and illustrations throughout.
