The town was attacked in broad daylight by 188 bombers, dive bombers and fighters from the same Japanese task force that, two months earlier, had brought the United States into the war at Pearl Harbour. Douglas Lockwood was correspondent for the Melbourne 'Herald' in Darwin at the time of the raids and has since travelled the world to find survivors and participants. He has interviewed Japanese and American airmen and historians and added their statements to his personal knowledge in producing the first complete reconstruction of that tragic day.
