    'Without the generosity and encouragement of so many Koories this book would not have been possible. We travelled together recording stories from Aboriginal men and women who have served Australia in times of war' (from the authors).

    'The stories are of Victorian Aboriginal people’s experiences in World War One, World War Two, Korea and Vietnam. There is a section on the soldiers of Lake Tyers Mission and information about the war work at Cummeragunga Mission. Also included is a list of Aboriginal servicemen and women provided to the authors. Many of the stories describe the different treatment of Aboriginal people during the war and after.'
