My Australian Story: The Bombing of Darwin

Alan Tucker

More bombs exploded and within seconds several ships were on fire.
Japanese planes flew so close to Tom that he could not only see the red
circles painted under their wings, but I could see the pilots' faces.
It only took a moment. It was a moment that Tom would always remember
that morning of 19 February 1942, when life changed from peace to war.

This work of fiction tells the story of the bombing of Darwin from a fourteen year old boy’s perspective. The book is written like a diary, with each day of the experience being told in detail.

Soft cover, 188 pages.
