Special Discounted Offer for Advance Purchases
The second volume of Bravo Zulu, scheduled for release in October 2018, traces the history and significant events in Australia’s navy from 1975 to the RAN’s Centennial year of 2014, through the stories of those of its men and women selected to receive honours and awards.
It covers the Navy’s amazing response to its call to arms for the 1991 Gulf War and its involvement since that time in enforcing UN sanctions on Iraq, the 2003 Iraq War and the service of its people in Iraq and Afghanistan. One chapter describes the RAN’s crucial role in the 1999-2000 UN operation to bring peace to East Timor.
Bigger than Volume 1, the book also details the efforts involved in successfully modernising the Navy’s equipment while coping with a stream of Defence ‘reforms’. Moving stories of the efforts of RAN ships and their crews to safeguard illegal immigrants intercepted at sea illustrate the Navy’s contribution to Australia’s border security, and naval support for peacekeeping in the South Pacific region is also recounted.
But above all, Bravo Zulu Volume 2 is about people – those recognised for their gallantry in action, bravery in all circumstances, and for labouring mightily to ensure that Australia’s navy continues to be acknowledged internationally for its and organisational capability and operational reach.
