Description

Bravo Zulu Volume 2 traces the history and significant events in Australia's navy from 1975 to the RAN's
Centennial year of 2014, through the stories of those of its men and women selected to receive
honours and awards. It covers the Navy's amazing response to its call to arms for the 1991 Gulf
War and its involvement since that time in enforcing UN sanctions on Iraq, the 2003 Iraq war
and the service of its people in Iraq and Afghanistan. One chapter describes the Navy's crucial
role in the 1999-2000 UN operation to bring peace to East Timor.
Volume 2 also details the efforts involved in successfully modernising the Navy's equipment
while coping with a stream of Defence 'reforms'. Moving stories of the efforts of RAN ships and
their crews to safeguard illegal immigrants intercepted at sea illustrate the Navy's contribution
to Australia's border security, and naval support for peacekeeping in the South Pacific region is
also recounted.
But above all, Bravo Zulu Volume 2 is about people--those recognised for their gallantry
in action, bravery in all circumstances, and for labouring mightily to ensure that Australia's
navy continues to be acknowledged internationally for its and organisational capability and
operational reach.
