I have wanted to pay tribute to the Australian Military who fought alongside the Allied forces in both European Theatre and Asian Theatre of war. I have painted these Artizan miniatures to represent standard Australian Infantry from the Asian Theatre such as Burma amongst many.
World War II contributed to major changes in the nation's economy, military and foreign policy. The war accelerated the process of industrialisation, led to the development of a larger peacetime military and began the process with which Australia shifted the focus of its foreign policy from Britain to the United States. The final effects of the war also fostered the development of a more diverse and cosmopolitan Australian society.
