Publishers Description: We are the last bastion between the Japanese and the west coast of America. If you let us fall, America itself is in danger.aThis appeal, broadcast by AustraliAs Prime Minister John Curtin to the United States in 1942, signalled the greatest crisis in AustraliAs history.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most important figures are Curtin, Menzies, Roosevelt, Churchill, MacArthur and Blamey.Drawing on both published and unpublished documents from Australian, British and US sources, some of which had only recently been released, Kristin Williamson has imaginatively recreated the events of the three most crucial years in the history of Australia.
