The Soldiers’ XI Humour, humanity and the psychology of modern combat
January 1, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - January 2, 2018 @ 4:00 am
The Soldiers’ XI explores the conflicts in Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan from the unique perspective of cricket. Sergeant H has played cricket on 11 deployments with the Australian Army: to maintain team resilience, to build rapport with locals, and to de-stress after combat.
Cricket once even brought together allies and enemy.
Eleven bats each tell a story about war in the twenty-first century.
