The Imperial Japanese Navy bombers that attacked Pearl Harbour on December 7th 1941 blitzed Darwin on February 19th 1942.

As Australia defended her mainland for the first time, the only ally standing with her was the United States of America. On that day, Americans and Australians were forged as Cousins-in-Arms.  

John Thompson-Gray brings new evidence to explain Australia’s most infamous day.

Soft cover, photographs, 128 pages.
