In 1942 many Australians believed the invasion of Australia was imminent, and only the heroism of the Australian soldiers at Milne Bay and Kokoda saved the nation from Japanese occupation.

We now know that Japan had decided not to invade long before the raids on Darwin and Sydney and the struggle for New Guinea.

This book explains the reasons Japan had for making no attempt at invasion, and what its intentions were for Australia, should New Guinea be occupied.
