Battle for Australia

Battle for Australia

Australia was unprepared in 1942. The country had sent its soldiers to fight in North Africa, leaving its shores unprotected. Australia’s then Prime Minister, Menzies, was more concerned with the defence of Britain than he was for his own nation. The Royal Australian Navy and the Air Force, was likewise committed to defending England’s green and pleasant land. There was not one single fighter aircraft to protect Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide or Darwin from the Japanese threat.
