Mark Patrick spoke with Dr Ray Kerkhove, author of a new book called How They Fought: Indigenous Tactics and Weaponry of Australia’s Frontier Wars, to discuss why he wrote the book, and who could benefit from the evidence.
How They Fought is written as an introductory guidebook. The chapters cover organisation, strategies, weaponry, and defences. The book considers both traditional practices and technological and tactical adaptations and includes numerous tables, figures and diagrams.
