'The Last Bastion is the story of a major power struggle, with bitter conflict between Canberra, London and Washington. The most important figures are Curtin, Menzies, Roosevelt, Churchill, MacArthur and Blamey - men whose characters were as diverse as the interests of the nations they represented.
Drawing on both published and unpublished documents from Australian, British and US sources, some of which have only recently been released, Kristin Williamson has imaginatively recreated the events of the three most crucial years in the history of Australia.'
