The bombing of Darwin: the diary of Tom Taylor, Darwin 1942
When fourteen-year-old Tom Taylor moves to Darwin with his family, he hardly guesses that tragedy will soon change his life forever. Although Tom helps to dig slit trenches, and though the Japanese edge closer through Malaysia and Singapore, the war seems far away. Written by Alan Tucker, winner of the 2003 Young People's History Prize at the NSW Premier’s Awards, and short-listed in Fiction for Older Readers at the Young Australian Best Book Award 2004. Hard cover, 195 pages.
