on the warpath
an anthology of australian military travel
edited by robin gerster & peter pierce
On the Warpath sets out to demonstrate how armies on the road and over the seas have helped forged links between Australia and other nations such as Sudan in 1885 and Afghanistan in 2001. These ties forged in conflicts through the years have been put into words by such authors as Banjo Patterson, Nancy Wake, John Pilger and Peter Weir.
The combatants themselves have also furnished much valuable information with diaries and letters which contain their reflections. In addition many Australians have been visitors to battle sites and returned with their own impressions of how Australian war experience has infiltrated the society's psyche.
