Stanley, Peter: Invading Australia

Stanley, Peter

Invading Australia: Japan and the Battle for Australia, 1942, Viking Penguin, Melbourne, 2008

The author makes the important distinction between the emotional fears of Australians in 1942 that they were under threat of Japanese invasion and the historical, evidence-based conclusion that some in the Japanese command considered invasion but the plan was rejected. The author discusses here the controversy his book provoked and provides links to some reviews. There is more in the Peter J Dean collection.
