Publishers Description: When Japan made it vicious thrust for power in 1941 and 1942, Australian troops were in Malaya and Singapore, and scattered about the island of New Guinea and the Netherlands East Indies. It was a terrifying time for all Australians as their front-line soldiers staggered in the tropical battlegrounds of South-East Asia, overrun by vastly superior forces and forced into a humiliating surrender. The war was approaching Australia's doorstep, but as Japan beats it way through the New Guinea jungle to Kokoda, the Diggers grimly held on against all odds. Finally they inflicted a crushing defeat on Japanese land forces at Milne Bay, which together with crucial Allied naval victories began to turn the enemy back. War against Japan 1941-1942 is the dramatic story of Australia's gravest hours, as its heroic soldiers faced the tragedies and triumphs of a shocking war.
