Exploring the concept of military boredom, this book investigates how soldiers spent their time when not engaged in battle, work or training through a study of their creative, imaginative and intellectual lives. Drawing on the experience of Australian troops participating in three key twentieth-century conflicts, it examines the efforts of military authorities to provide solutions to military boredom, and the ways in which soldiers responded to such efforts.
