Reading for War

Archives of the Australian Army Journal

By Tom McDermott February 13, 2019


Since 1948 the Australian Army Journal has acted as the primary, formal forum for the Army’s professional discussion.  Articles are written by serving officers and soldiers, academics and think tanks, and cover a range of topics in the land environment.

The entire archive is now available online.  An amazing historical resource for Professional Military Education!
