The author's story of the RAAMC opens with an introduction to the feeling of insecurity in the Australasian colonies in the nineteenth century, the development of colonial military forces and the part played by their medical officers, especially that of Surgeon-Major William Williams in the 1885 Sudan campaign--and later as Principal Medical Officer in New South Wales.
In his final chapter the author deals with events of the last two decades of the twentieth century: defence policy, changes to the RAAMC structure, the demise of field ambulance units, the operations in Iraq, Somalia, Rwanda, Bougainville and East Timor.
The comprehensive appendices include lists of RAAMC personnel and units.
