  • K is for Kokoda

    An A to Z of Australia and the Second World War

    By Matt Anderson

    Nothing before or since has rivaled Australia's participation in the Second World War, both in its extent and its intensity. The war changed how we saw ourselves as a nation and to whom we would look in the future to underwrite our security. It modernised our industry, swept away the unemployment of the Great Depression, and redefined the role of women at home, in the work force and in the armed services. Through a collection of short overviews and sketches, K is for Kokoda explores these and other aspects of Australians at war in 1939-1945.

    Published by the ANZAC Day Commemoration Committee (Queensland), 2010. Soft cover, photographs, 104 pages. ISBN 978-0-9804480-3-0
