Summary
  • A social history of those who faced WWII on Australian territory - stories of evacuation, escape, massacres, prisoners of war and our greatest maritime disaster, the tragic sinking of Montevideo Maru. Commorating the 75th anniversary of this period in the New Guinea Islands. This collection of personal and family stories is about the Australian settlers in New Guinea, civilians and ex-servicemen who had their lives disrupted by war, and of the young soldiers who found themselves defending a tropical township.
