In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
How did Australia, supported by New Zealand, become the lead nation in an off-shore, multinational, tri-service force with an integrated headquarters? A force that included accompanying dependants with full garrison support. This book records a comprehensive account of ANZUK and its precursor organisations, how it was formed, how it operated, and how it disintegrated. Emphasis is given to individual accounts and to the smaller units.
When the United Kingdom withdrew its military forces from 'East of Suez' in 1971, the Australian and New Zealand governments decided to retain their military forces in Singapore. However, after a general election in the United Kingdom, the new government decided to leave a force in Singapore. Both Australia and New Zealand were cautious about this concept and were reluctant to take a leading role in the 'Five Power Defence Arrangement'.
The book explains how the ANZ Force became the ANZUK Force. It has been intensively researched in the archives of Australia and New Zealand and is illustrated with colour and black and white photos. Sections cover the contributions from the Navy, Army and Air Force services from each of the three nations and how they were maintained by a single Support Group. There are also sections on sport, families and the lifestyle.
