"The Commanders" tells the story of 16 of Australia's most eminent military men as they performed under the stress of strategy-making and in the heat of battle. The questions it addresses include: Is there an Australian style of command?; how well have Australian officers been prepared for high command?; how have Australian commanders handled the problems of coalition war or co-operation with allies?; how have political direction, organizational structures and entrenched defense policy affected the performance of commanders in the field?; the commanders put under the spotlight are: Bridges, Brudenell White, Creswell, Chauvel, Monash, Lavarack, Sturdee, Gordon Bennett, Morshead, Blamey, Rowell, Herring, Vasey, Robertson, Scherger and Wilton. Each of the 16 lives examined presents a revealing account of the conditions under which crucial military decisions are made and carried out - on the battlefield, at headquarters, in victory and defeat. "The commanders" will appeal not only to students of military affairs but to everyone interested in Australian history and biography

Australian peacekeeping : sixty years in the field by D. M Horner( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peacekeeping has been a significant part of Australia's overseas military engagement since the end of the Second World War. Yet it is part of our history that has been largely neglected until the 1990s, and even since then interest has been slow to develop. In the last sixty years, between 30,000 and 40,000 Australian military personnel and police have served in more than 50 peacekeeping missions in at least 27 different conflicts. From the first Australian mission to Indonesia in 1947 to operations in East Timor, Bosnia and Rwanda among others, this book finally gives Australian peacekeeping its proper status. This work approaches Australian peacekeeping from four angles: its history, its agencies, some personal reflections, and its future. Contributors discuss the distinction between peacekeeping and war-fighting, the importance of peacekeeping in terms of public policy, the problems of multinational command, and the specialist contributions of the military, civilian police, mine-clearers, weapons inspectors and diplomats. The collection concludes with experts in the field including Tim Ford, a former Military Adviser to the UN Secretary-General, and distinguished academic Ramesh Thakur offering their perspectives on future directions for Australian peacekeeping"--Provided by publisher
The spy catchers. the official history of ASIO, 1949-1963 by D. M Horner( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, ASIO has opened its archives to an independent historian. With unfettered access to the records, David Horner tells the real story of Australia's domestic intelligence organisation, from shaky beginnings to the expulsion of Ivan Skripov in 1963. From the start, ASIO's mission was to catch spies. In the late 1940s, the top secret Venona program revealed details of a Soviet spy ring in Australia, supported by leading Australian communists. David Horner outlines the tactics ASIO used in counter-espionage, from embassy bugging to surveillance of local suspects. His research sheds new light on the Petrov Affair, and details incidents and activities that have never been revealed before. This authoritative and ground-breaking account overturns many myths about ASIO, and offers new insights into broader Australian politics and society in the fraught years of the Cold War

"In December 1944 General Blamey, the commander-in-chief of the Australian Military Forces, was handed a file. It contained decrypted radio intercepts which proved that the Imperial Japanese Army was receiving top secret information - US and Australian war plans. Material that could lead to the death of Allied servicemen in the Pacific."--BOOK JACKET. "The most likely source: Canberra."--BOOK JACKET. "So began a hunt that took five years, involved the world's most secret intelligence organisations and resulted in the exposure and neutralisation of a Soviet espionage network in Australia."--BOOK JACKET. "Breaking the Codes is a story of international counter-espionage and signals intelligence. It tells of a secret war which sowed the seeds of suspicion in Moscow, Washington and London, seeds which flowered in the Cold War and led to the creation of ASIO."--BOOK JACKET

Between the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 and the fighting on the north coast of Papua a year later, Australians were involved in a number of decisive battles that have become part of the folklore of Australian history. These were battles that helped shape their national identity and dramatically influenced the course of their history. Suddenly Australia's focus moved from the war in Europe to a new, more pressing danger at home. Modern Australia faced for the first time the direct threat of invasion. These battles were commemorated by The Australian in a series of 50th anniversary special features. These features included important pieces of writing from Australia's best journalists and military historians on the major battles during this period, including Pearl Harbor, the fall of Singapore, the Battle of the Coral Sea, Guadalcanal, the Battle of El Alamein, the Kokoda Track and Milne Bay. This selection contains thorough outlines of events, firsthand accounts and reminiscences, and analyses of the major political, military, strategic and historical issues
