Pacific 360 degrees
PACIFIC 360 is a sweeping national narrative that looks at the Pacific War in its entirety, bringing together the story behind one of the most crucial times in Australian history.
On 7 December 1941, Australia was pushed to centre stage as Japan entered the Second World War 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.
