As a 22 year old young Australian I was very excited when I came across this documentary series so I could see what had happened in my country before I was born, and what my people had gone through in war and conflict. As a Seaman in the Royal Australian Navy I was fascinated to see what harsh conditions those of the Australian Defence Force had withstood and how lucky I am to follow in their footsteps. This series has given us the chance to see how Australias views on war have changed and how our country itself is different from that which our great grandfathers were born into. For those who want to know more about what Australia truly is, than this series shows it to you in full. 10/10.
Just as The World At War (Thames, 1974) is considered the definitive A/V history of World War II, Australians at War is the definitive history of Australian's involvement in conflicts throughout history. Including footage never before seen by people who aren't involved in archiving at various film libraries, and even footage not known to exist, Australians at War examines the grand strategy and politics of the various campaigns, as well as the hardships faced by the men on the ground. It is one of the best documentaries to have been produced in recent years, and I would recommend it to any person, Australian or not, who has any interest in this nation's history.
