Publisher: RJ Moore, (1995) First Edition. This copy 1996, 3rd reprint. Very good softback come creasing to covers, a sentence has been written in ink to margin of one page. There is more annotation in pencil to some pages,which could be erased, but it is written by a soldier who was there and so adds to the appeal of the book. Minor marks. 209 pages, illustrated.

A now scarce account of the small band of inexperienced Australian and British fighter pilots who fought an ongoing air battle in defence of north-western Australia, flying against a formidably skilled and proficient opponent. The air raids on Darwin during 1942-43 constituted the only sustained and intensive direct assault on Australian mainland territory in the whole of World War Two and yet, surprisingly, most Australians have no idea that it ever happened.
