Win a signed copy of General Sir Peter Cosgrove's Memoir

General Sir Peter Cosgrove AK AC (Mil) CVO MC (Retd) is one of Australia's most significant public figures. As a soldier he saw action in Vietnam, winning the Military Cross, and then rising to the very top of his profession to become Chief of the Defence Force.


In 2014, Cosgrove was sworn in as Australia's Governor-General. During his tenure, he travelled far and wide, supporting Australians in times of crisis, sadness, joy or celebration. He has represented us on the world stage with humour, intelligence and a force of personal magnetism that was felt by everyone from prime ministers to presidents.


Named after an expression much used during his days as a soldier, You Shouldn’t Have Joined is the story of Cosgrove's extraordinarily full and eventful life. It is also the story of those who have shared it with him, in particular his wife Lynne. His memoir is a true reflection of the man himself, filled with intelligence, forthrightness, compassion and a brilliant eye for a telling anecdote.

Enter today to win a signed copy of Cosgrove’s memoir You Shouldn’t Have Joined.
