'...chronicles those dark days when Prime Minister John Curtin fought to bring back our experienced troops from the European war while at the same time ensuring the Americans came to Australia's aid; the loss of the AIF division in Malaya; the Militia's battles on the Kokoda Track and at Milne Bay; and the navel Battle of the Coral Sea. Once these early battles are won the book moves on to the subsequent campaigns in New Guinea and Borneo.
To illustrated the comprehensive text ... Michael Andrews makes use of the fabulous pictorial collection of the Australian War Memorial. It is a timely reminder of the dark days of the 1940s - for both those lived through them and those wanting an insight into this turbulent period in Australia's history.'
