Defending Country is the first book to document the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander servicemen and women in the post-Second World War era.
Using a combination of personal narratives and documentary evidence, it examines how participation in the military impacted the lives of Australian Indigenous service personnel. It also reveals how Indigenous involvement in Australia's defence has contributed to the advancement of Indigenous rights, both for the individual servicemen and women and in Australia at large. There is little public awareness about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander military service, and even less so about the post-Second World War era. (book blurb)
