Country Victoria's Own 7th and 8th Battalion Military History Book

This Battalion history book traces the evolution of the 7th and 8th military Battalions.


'Country Victoria's Own' records the history of the Ballarat and Bendigo Infantry Battalions and the units in major cities and towns that form the 'predecessors' in the sub-title. Over the years, Ballarat has been linked with major Victorian centres such as Geelong, Mildura, Bendigo, Shepparton and Warrnambool, along with smaller towns such as Ararat, Maryborough, Hamilton, Portland, Swan Hill, Echuca and Cobram, and southern New South Wales towns including Wentworth and Deniliquin. This book reveals the interconnection between those towns and the military history of northern and western Victoria.


A large history supported with numerous tables and photographs.
