Aftermath: The End of the Second World War

Aftermath: The End of the Second World War cover

This commemorative book explores the aftermath of World War II. With millions of Australians involved in and out of uniform, the war caused big social, economic and diplomatic changes. It took a while for the immediate effects of the end of the conflict to work themselves through in the post-war world. The images and stories in this book bring us closer to that changing world.
