What did our service men and women truly die, fight for, and save Australia from in World War II? In 1942–1943, most Australians believed invasion was imminent, but that the heroism of Kokoda saved Australia from a Japanese occupation. We now know that Japan decided not to invade long before the raids on Sydney and the struggle in New Guinea. This book explains what other reasons Japan had, apart from military strategy, for making no attempt to invade Australia despite good opportunities in ninety-six successful bombing raids, and, what Japan’s intentions were for Australia, if it had captured New Guinea.
