Oswald, Bruce & Waddell, Jim, ed.

Justice in Arms: Military Lawyers in the Australian Army’s First Hundred Years, Big Sky, Newport, NSW, 2014

Describes the work of Army legal officers in Australia and in expeditionary operations from the Boer War until 2000, addressing clashing institutional and political imperatives, along with the personalities involved. The book shows that military justice ‘is rightly concerned with discipline and cohesiveness’ but also with ‘the rule of law and respect for the rights, liberties and fair treatment of those who serve in the armed forces’.
