    1. This book is a look at a part of WWII that we rarely, if ever, hear about in this part of the worlde war in the Pacific, specifically as it affected Australia. The historical aspects of it alone were fascinating and detailed.More than that, this is just a very good tale. Lots of human interest, high drama, and romance, with last half-dozen pages of the exciting and surprising conclusion wrapping up the last of the story line's loose ends.I've read quite a bit of historical fiction over the years [...]

    2. My husband is a WWII nut so I thought I knew pretty much all the battles that had to do with it but this book showed me how very wrong I was.While I seemed to bog down in some of the details of the troop movements and Government decisions. Overall it was a good read with an interesting viewpoint from the Australians view of the war coming to their shores and all of us arriving to take over.I would read more of David Crookes booksSome language I would rather do without but he is trying to be true [...]

    3. Excellent, well-researched story -- I learned about a part of WWII of which I'd previously been unaware.I took one star away because the book is marred by extremely poor or non-existent editing
