Book Details

BRISBANE. Spring, 1942. “Fortress” Singapore has fallen and Britain has abandoned Australia. The Japanese are victorious in the Asia-Pacific, carrying all before them and are now in New Guinea, on Australia’s doorstep. Ill-prepared, Australia looks to the United States for help but the very foundation of the alliance is in jeopardy. Building on an undercurrent of tension & grievance, a huge 2-day street battle between Australian and US personnel has left several men dead and scores injured, many gravely. Australian and US command recognize the tinder-box has become a fire that may only be days away from growing to a conflagration that could destroy an alliance on which Australia’s very survival depends.
