Summary: A sweeping national narrative that looks for the first time at the Pacific War in its entirety, bringing together the story behind one of the most crucial times in Australian history.

On 7 December, 1941 Australia was pushed to centre stage as Japan entered World War II and began the offensive which triggered the Pacific War. Perry captures the drama and detail of the Australian Government's political and military juggling act to handle allies and enemies alike as the nation prepared at home for a fight to the death, while on the front its armed forces fought for the nation's existence throughout the Asian Pacific.This chronological dual narrative follows the story of Australia's Pacific War on the front lines and at home, and how such a critical moment in history has affected and shaped Australia's political and social culture.
