When Imperial Japan unleashed the Pacific War in December 1941, Australian forces went into action, as part of a larger British Empire force, to defend Malaya and Singapore. This action reflected an Australian commitment to defending Australia by protecting its 'near north'. Part of the Australian Army Campaign Series, this book is published by the Army History Unit. It is written for members of the Australian Army with a focus on leadership, command, strategy, tactics, lessons and personal experiences of war.
