On 19 November, 2020, the Chief of the Australian Defence Force stood in front of our nation and apologised to another: “To the people of Afghanistan,” said Angus Campbell, “on behalf of the Australian Defence Force, I sincerely and unreservedly apologise for any wrongdoing by Australian soldiers.” He spoke on the release of the findings of the Brereton Inquiry into War Crimes. Samantha Crompvoets’s work triggered that report and is outlined in Blood Lust, Trust & Blame. Mark Willacy reported first on the crimes it investigated, detailed in Rogue Forces.
