Experiences of War

But the impact of war is all pervasive. Consequently the material on this website covers not only the armed conflicts but other related topics - prisoners of war, the internment of civilians, conscription, women and war, children and war.

The website provides an introduction to the Library's rich resources relevant to these subjects, much of it being the records of individual South Australians caught up in one or other of the many facets of war.
