Re: WW II thread
I'm assuming this discussion is open to all thing WW2. I found it interesting to note that Japan never intended to invade Australia because the undertaking would have been too large. I was told from a young age in school that if it wasn't for our forces, we could be controlled by the Japanese.
I feel bad for the Australian troops that took such pride in defending our nation that the destruction of this myth would somehoe belittle their efforts. Anyway it shouldn't, they still did amazing and helped many other nations. Kokoda will always be a defining moment in Australian war history. The book is a great read for anyone interested in such topics.
