    This book provides a comprehensive & compelling account of Australian military history before any soldier set foot on Gallipoli. It shows that this pre-1915 history has largely been forgotten. Indeed the extent to which Australians thought about war, and how they experienced war before ANZAC existed, is quite surprising. Starting with detailed accounts of both traditional indigenous warfare & frontier wars between whites settlers & indigenous inhabitants, the reader learns of the setting up of colonial navies, the red coats who guarded the colonies, Australians fighting in wars against New Zealand Maori, cadet and rifle clubs, as well as the overseas wars Australia joined up for in the Crimea and Sudan.
