This is a great novel which tells us what happened in World War II.

Australia entered World War II in September 1939 to support England who had declared war against Germany. The second Australian Imperial Force was sent to fight Germany in North America (2nd AIF) and when Japan attacked the British and Australian force in Singapore the British were defeated. Japan destroyed the American pacific fleet in Pearl Harbour. Japan invaded New Guinea and planned to move around and attack Australia. the Japanese thought that Australia would be pushed easily. An untrained army went and fought Japan. They had very little food and drink. They fought Japanese and defeated them.
