A Great Range of Topics & Presenters

These talks cover almost any aspect of a range of wars that Australia has been involved, including the home front. Very human approach taken as a general theme, as you would expect from the organisers. You can pick and choose your topics, but they are all very good and I would recommend them to anyone interested in Australian military history
