While Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have enlisted in the Australian defence forces since the Boer War, for much of this time they defied racist restrictions and were denied full citizenship rights on their return to civilian life. Based on oral histories and contributions from a number of respected authors, Serving Our Country reveals the courage, resilience and trauma of Indigenous defence personnel and their families. It documents the long struggle to gain recognition for their role in the defence of Australia. Soft cover, 445 pages.
