These personal accounts range from WWI to war in the 21st century. Some are very funny, others will bring tears to your eyes. There are tales of victory and defeat, tragedy and larrikinism, capturing 'the laconic humour of the Aussie digger'.
Soldiers' Tales #2 is a unique collection of personal accounts told by soldiers or relatives who have lived with their stories. Spanning the period from World War I through to the conflicts of the modern era, these stories are a mixture of the humorous and the intensely emotional. This collection is unmistakably Australian and is a combination of larrikin yarns and other more serious stories that tell of tragedy and often unspoken pain.
