General Sir Peter Cosgrove discussing his new memoir
General Sir Peter Cosgrove is one of Australia’s most significant public figures and joined Gareth Parker to discuss his memoir “You Shouldn’t have Joined – A Memoir”.
As a soldier he saw action in Vietnam, winning the Military Cross, and rose to the very top of his profession, becoming Chief of the Defence Force.
Soon after his retirement from the Army, he was invited to take charge of the huge relief and rebuilding operation in Queensland after the devastation of Cyclone Larry.
In 2014, Cosgrove became Australia’s Governor-General. As Governor-General he travelled far and wide, supporting Australians in times of crisis, sadness, joy or celebration.
