The AIF database is drawn from a range of official sources, including personal files on the National Archives website, and Embarkation and Nominal Rolls on the Australian War Memorial website.
The Master of War Studies is an interdisciplinary study program focused on war and its effects. The program is built around a central core of subjects in Military History with additional options addressing topics in strategy, international relations, security and literature. The program is of strong professional relevance to members of the Australian Defence Force and other military personnel, as well as members of the broader defence community. The program's offerings in Military History also make it very well suited for history teachers and others with a particular interest in Military History. The program is also designed to meet the needs of Postgraduate scholars from a range of disciplines who have an interest in armed conflict.
The purpose of the gift is to support activities carried out by the Australian Centre for the Study of Armed Conflict and Society (ACSACS), with particular focus on the AIF Database.
