Australians fought in every theatre of war in World War II. So high was their involvement that by 1943 more than 15 per cent of Australia's population was serving in the armed forces. In this day-by-day record, we see how the war escalated and how the commitment of Australian forces increased. All the land battles in which Australian troops took part are covered, from the Libyan campaign in 1940-41 to Balikpapanin in 1945. The wide-ranging operations of the Royal Australian Navy in every theatre of maritime conflict are detailed - in the Arctic, Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and the North, Mediterranean, Aegean, Caribbean and Red Seas. The formation and significant operations of the RAAF squadrons are also chronicled, from the departure from Australia in 1939 of the men who would form the No. 10 squadron in the UK, to the Mustangs of No 76 Squadron - the first "British" squadron in the occupation of Japan. The book is a comprehensive account of Australia's involvement and a tribute to the individual men and women who served so selflessly.
