In the early years of the Second World War a Japanese invasion of Australia seemed to be a distinct prospect. Our excessive reliance on Britain had led to a long period of neglect of Australia's armed forces. A large volunteer force was raised for overseas service and at home thousands set about in the defence of Australia. Everyone did 'their bit' from the Volunteer Defence Corps to the Australian Women's Land Army.The Department of Veterans’ Affairs Australians in the Pacific War series follows the events of several Pacific War campaigns throughout 1940-1945, covering details with clear insight and imagery easily understandable for all audiences.Soft cover, 141 pages.
