What happened in Australia back in 1941? Most people aren't likely to remember.

So what made news in 1941? In Europe, Hitler made his biggest mistake in the War when he invaded Russia. Churchill made his own big mistake when he sent Australian troops to the slaughter in Greece and Crete. In the Pacific, Japan was getting more frustrated as America cut off her resources by blockades. In Oz, we ignored obvious signs of imminent war, and were shocked to the core when the Japs bombed Pearl Harbour in December. A Pacific War started, and Hitler made his second biggest blunder by siding with Japan. We in Australia could not believe that our own shores were under threat.  

This is one in a series of year-by-year books ranging from 1939-1971. They are a great read to see what made news throughout the years.

Please note this book is filled with articles from the year, not photographs,
