Ever since men and women learned to read and write, maps and charts have been important in many fields of endeavour. Nowhere have they been more important than in armed conflict, where campaigns have risen or fallen, succeeded or failed, for the want of reliable maps or charts. For historiansand for general readers operating in a less threatening environment, the lack of useful maps does not carry the same possibility of disaster, But it does make the process of understanding complex manoeuvres in any of the three media- land, sea or air- very difficulty to follow. The purpose of thisatlas is to give readers a tangible link between the operations and campaigns described in the text and their expression in graphic form by the maps, which accompany the text and are juxtaposed on the right-hand side of the atlas. Thus the text on every left-hand page is matched with itsilluminating set of maps on the right. The atlas covers frontier conflict and colonial wars during the nineteenth century and the ten wars in which Australian's have been involved in the centenary 1901-2001. It also covers peace-keeping operations. The atlas relates a magnificent story of thecompetence, courage, and self-sacrifice by Australia's armed services.
