Aus­tralia in the Pa­cific War

Christina Twomey

1,500 Aus­tralian civil­ians were cap­tured by the Ja­panese in Asia and the Pa­cific dur­ing the war. These men, women and chil­dren were in­terned in Sin­ga­pore, the Philip­pines and else­where. They suf­fered and starved; many died and some men were ex­e­cuted. Twomey high­lights the di­ver­sity of Aus­tralian ex­pe­ri­ences dur­ing this global con­flict.
