Darwin Spitfires: the real battle for Australia

Anthony Cooper

The Japanese air raids on Darwin on 19 February 1942 are well known to most Australians, but what happened afterwards?

For almost two years the airspace over North West Australia was routinely penetrated by Japanese raids, tallying about 70 in total. Telling the story of the RAAF's No. 1 Fighter Wing, composed of Australian and British Spitfire pilots, Darwin Spitfires explores the little-known 1943 season of air combat over the Top End.

Soft cover, photographs, 516 pages.
