Fighting the Enemy: Australian Soldiers and Their Adversaries in World War II
Fighting the Enemy is about men with the job of killing each other. Based on the wartime writings of hundreds of Australian front-line soldiers during World War II, this powerful and resonant book contains many moving descriptions of high emotion and drama. Soldiers' interactions with their enemies are central to war, and their attitudes to their adversaries are crucial to the way wars are fought. This book is an unprecedented and thorough examination of the way Australian combat soldiers interacted with troops from the four powers engaged in World War II.

If you've read at any length about World War II combat this book will have few real surprises for you, though it is a nice little monograph that does bring together an interesting collection of anecdotes and observations. I personally found the chapter dealing with the attitudes of Australian troops towards being in combat with Vichy French forces in the Levant to be of most interest, if only for the relative novelty.
