Author(s): Roland Perry
On 7 December 1941, Australia was pushed to centre stage as Japan entered World War II and began the offensive which triggered the Pacific War. Roland Perry captures the drama and detail of the Australian Government's political and military struggle with allies and enemies alike as those at home prepared for a fight to the death, while in the Pacifc theatre Australia's armed forces fought for the nation's very existence. This chronological dual narrative follows the story of Australia's Pacific War on the front lines and at home, and how such a critical moment in history has affected and shaped Australia's political and social culture.
Roland Perry is the successful author of numerous books, including THE AUSTRALIAN LIGHT HORSE, BRADMAN'S INVINCIBLES and MONASH: THE OUTSIDER WHO WON A WAR. For more information visit http://www.rolandperryauthor.com
