    Assignment on the drinking culture in sporting clubs and what behavioural and environmental risk factors contribute to the problem.

    I'm looking for a book on the Australian Armed Forces during World War II... Something like a battle history... I found some good stuff online, but the name of good book on the subject would really help -- Thanks!!

    Oh, I started looking for you sorry mate
    I found some really good ones on Amazon.com
    I will have a bit more of a dig around but don't have any personally to recomend at the moment.
    There certainly are such things though

    You may have found these but here are a couple of online options:

    The official Gov site www.ww2australia.gov.au

    A personal project more aimed at Homeland Security including the Pacific Theatre: http://home.st.net.au/~dunn/

    From a TV Series of the same name but Australia in each of our conflicts: www.australiansatwar.com.au/default.asp

    The Poms take on proceedings: http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk...lia_at_war.htm

    I have a meeting in a few minutes but will try and track down those books I found earlier for you Thunderchook

    Toburk and the Kookda trail by Peter Fitzsimmons ( his writing style is to try and go from the soliders point of view, normally get 6-10 perspectives on events during the book)

    WHY ?

    Try looking at books available from the Australian War Memorial, I know they had quite a big range when we were there. This link should take you to the WWII collection of books they have available...
    http://cas.awm.gov.au/TST2/cst.acct_...form=Microsoft


    If not, click on the books & magazines tab and on the left hand side there is a list of categories. Click on WWII and there's 3 pages worth of different books available.

    Also the movie Kokoda is well worth a watch. If that is even 10% of what it was really like it is phenomenal.

    Some of the best books I have read about Australia's war experience in detail was a series called Australians at War, first published in 1988 by Time Life books.
    It depends on what you are looking for. Peter Fitzsimmons books give a very human perspective, has a place but also has downsides as well.

    Can someone tell me what channel was televising cricket this morning (dont know what game sorry). The people in the flat next door had cricket on as I was leaving for work, which confused me, cos I'm assuming it wasn't on standard FTA tele and I've been told there isn't a foxtel connection in my building- was it on OneHD?
