AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN AND IN THE MORNING WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.

The story of the biggest air raid in Australia’s history – the bombing of Darwin February, 1942.
All young Australians should know the story of how our own nation was at war in World War II. Dr Tom Lewis OAM brings to life the history of the hundreds of air attacks Australians endured at the hands of the Japanese forces. Following on from his success with previous forensic accounts for adults, Australia Remembers 4: The Bombing of Darwin 1942 brings young readers all the essential facts.

Read how Zero fighters battled American Kittyhawks; Betty bombers rained destruction from the skies, and Allied defenders battled bravely to defend Australia.

“Australia Remembers truly stands out like one of the tallest poppies in its field.”-  (Romi Sharp, Just Kids Lit)

“There are also questions to ponder and activities to do, all in all making this a superb contribution …”- (Barbara Braxton, The Bottom Shelf)
