Summary

Michael Tyquin provides a full account of the Australian Army Veterinary Corps’ operation from inception to dissolution and shows the magnitude of their contribution to the combat effectiveness of the Australian Army from 1909 to 1946. Importantly, this book finally brings the achievements of these brave and heroic men out of the shadows. These are true blue Aussie battlers.
