Abstract:

Australia is a remote nation, tucked away in the southern hemisphere with a tiny population compared to their densely populated neighbours to the North. Despite this, over the past two hundred years the Austrian military has punched well above its weight, earning a reputation for bravery and efficiency unrivalled in the modern world.

Whether they were aboriginal warriors, marines, soldiers of the crown or members of the army, RAAF or RAN, all have made a contributed to a proud military tradition.
