Reviewer: Peter Williams
THERE have been a number of accounts of the Imperial Japanese Navy raid on Darwin on 19 February 1942. Douglas Lockwood’s 1966 Australia’s Pearl Harbour was one of the first. In 1980 Tim Hall wrote Darwin 1942 and in 1988 Alan Powell produced a scholarly account in The Shadow’s Edge, Australia’s Northern War. In 2009 Peter Grose wrote An Awkward Truth, the bombing of Darwin.
