Summary
Australian writers have excelled since colonial times in presenting war in all its aspects, drawing character as it emerges under the pressures of life and death struggle. Arranged historically are poems and fine prose, from Furphy's sardonic story of the Arrow War, to post-Vietnam reflections on the aftermath of conflict, their insights are the key to an outlook on war which has not developed in other cultures
