Six years of Australians fighting for the nation and defending the homefront in World War II.

A compelling and passionate account of Australians in World War II, both on the home front and on the battle fronts.

Nearly one million Australians out of a total population of just seven million people joined the armed forces in World War II. They made an enormous contribution to the allied war effort; they inflicted the first land defeat of the Japanese at Milne Bay in New Guinea during that war and played a crucial part in the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa, the first defeat on land of the Germans.

These victories in battle were only made possible by their support from home. Still recovering from the First World War and the Great Depression the Australian population rallied to make these achievements possible.

This is the story of Australia and Australians at war at home and abroad in the 6 years, 1939 to 1945.
