Between 1951 and 1972 some 287 000 young Australian men were called-up in two separate schemes for compulsory military service. Of them 212 died and 1479 were wounded on active service.
This book provides an insight into the Nashos training and service as told by those who were conscripted. It also explains the reasons for National Service at the time. As well as the serious side, there is also the humour for which the Aussie digger is renowned.
