Oliver, Bobbie & Sue Summers, ed.

Lest We Forget? Marginalised Aspects of Australia at War and Peace, Black Swan Press, Curtin University, Perth, WA, 2014

The book asks what is being remembered and what is being forgotten within our war history. The marginalised groups and experience covered are disabled ex-servicemen, conscientious objectors, compulsorily directed workers, the people of Lemnos, servicewomen and nurses, while two articles look at the history of commemoration and Australia at war and peace. Besides the editors, the authors are John Stephens, Lenore Layman, Robyn Mayes, Graham Seal and John N. Yiannakis. There is a Foreword by Peter Stanley.

Lest We Forget? contributes to a more inclusive, open and true-to-life account of Australia’s experience of war and its aftermath upon the nation and its people. (blurb)

The book is reviewed by Paddy Gourley.
