Summary
1942 was a key year in Australia's history. For the first time, it seemed that young White Australia, an outpost of empire clinging to the edge of the world, was about to be invaded by the Japanese. In that one year, Darwin was bombed, submarines torpedoed ships in Sydney Harbour and brave militiamen died on the Kokoda Trail. How close did Australia actually come to being invaded? Invading Australia provides a comprehensive, thorough and well-argued answer to this and other questions. Peter Stanley examines the history of Australian attitudes to Japan before, during and after World War II, and uses archival sources to show that Japan scrapped any invasion plans early in 1942. He also shows that there never was any particular battle for Australia, but rather a worldwide fight for freedom and democracy that has allowed the West to enjoy great prosperity in the decades since 1945
