Legacies of War

Edited by Nigel Starck

Sixteen writers with a shared passion for military history combine their talents for storytelling in Legacies of War. There are tales of courage and triumph, destruction and waste, forgiveness and despair. Four themes underpin the narrative: Wounds of War; Artefacts of War; Writing War; Memory and Memorial. Each, in turn, presents the research discoveries and field observations of four specialist authors.

These stories were first told at a University of South Australia symposium; now, through the agency of this book, they reach out to a wider audience. Legacies of War adds a vivid chapter to the chronicles of conflict.
