The people of Darwin abandoned their town, leaving it to looters, a few anti-aircraft batteries, and a handful of dogged defenders with single-shot rifles. Yet the story has remained in the shadows. Drawing on long-hidden documents and first-person accounts, Grose tells what really happened. There was much to be proud of in Darwin that day: courage, mateship, determination and improvisation. But the dark side of the story involves looting, desertion and a calamitous failure of leadership. (1 of 2 available copies.). ISBN: 9781741756432. Our Book No: 15138. $14 AUD.

Examples are the role of spies, withholding the air raid warning, attacked hospitals, interpretation of information and subtleties of the Japanese attack plan. ISBN: 9780987258502.
