Abstract This book is about a war zone and the people in it. The war was World War II; the zone Australia’s Northern Territory (7th Military District) with extensions into western Queensland and the Kimberley district of Western Australia that follow the course of military control. The defensive and offensive conflicts fought by Australian and allied armed forces based on this area formed a very small part of a very large war, but they meant that for the first time in the history of European Australia some part of its people faced the full impact of modern war: destruction, dispossession and the blind sweep of Death. In that sense, it is the only war we have.
