Ashenden, Dean: Neglected wars

Ashenden, Dean

The Australian wars that Anzac Day neglects‘, Eureka Street, 21 April 2013

Notes that the frontier wars are not recognised at the Australian War Memorial and other memorials and argues that ‘public and popular history should record the things that do us credit as well as the things that don’t, not to pander to prejudice but because that’s the reality… It’s time we started talking about how Anzac Day can embrace difficult realities of war and nation, and still do the other things it needs to do.’ See also.
