The War to End All Wars - All twelve chapters now available

 The "war to end all wars" ushered in a century of violence on an unprecedented scale. A hundred years on, the lessons to be learned appear buried beneath a barrage of commemorative activities. MAPW believes that Australia could best honor those who died by learning from the past.

MAPW has commissioned a series of twelve papers from prominent historians, academics, former diplomats and health professional to highlight the ways in which our military and community has been affected by war. All the papers are now available below, just click the appropriate links.  Our sincere thanks to the authors.
