  • The armed, and political, fight for Australia

    Roland Perry writes an easy to read account of both the war action concerning Australians and the political background to the arrival and subsequent action of the US forces under Gen. MacArthur in our sphere of the war in the Pacific. Very well written.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Better than fiction

    A riveting narrative that fills in the details of Australia’s war time experience during those dreadful years 1942 to 1945 when Japan was pressing hard at our door. The analysis of the key players is fascinating, and enhances my respect for the Australian soldier even more.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A new understanding of WW2 for Australians

    This book gives me a new understanding of WW2 as it applied to Australia. Having previously read recent books about Kokoda, Darwin and Broome, I find this book helps to tie together the roles played by the Australian forces and politicians in those key years. Central is the role of Prime Minister John Curtin, who was a statesman of the highest level, but also at the same time so completely unlike Churchill. Australians should appreciate the history-defining decisions and actions of this amazing Prime Minister. This book also presents a balanced view of the huge role played by the Australian military (including the militia) in Papua and elsewhere. Highly recommended.

    Thanks for your feedback!
