              By 1945, General MacArthur's forces had advanced from Papua to the Philippines and to Borneo. The vast majority of the troops, supplies, and equipment for this campaign were transported by sea, and MacArthur's success was based on 22 amphibious assaults. Soldiers and Marines did ...the ground fighting and MacArthur's air forces eventually ruled the skies, but it was the ships of the United States and Australian navies that delivered them to the battlefronts and supported them. This book reveals facts of the Royal Australian Navy's crucial role in World War II.

              There have been few books which put the conflicts into the broadest perspective, and even fewer that also include in their narrative descriptions of the numerous wars and conflicts on the Northwest Frontier as well as Afghanistan. This book includes information on all such wars i...n Afghanistan, not just those involving British armies, and also describes their background. For the past four years Kevin Baker has been Lecturer and now Visiting Fellow at the Australian Defence Force Academy (UNSW at ADFA).

              Governor - General Sir John Kerr's dismissal of the elected Whitlam Government in 1975, more or less at the behest of the Liberal - Country Party Coalition led by Malcolm Fraser, was among the most momentous events in Australian political history. Born into a privileged life Whit...lam joined the Australian Labor Party, rose to be its Parliamentary leader and took it into power after twenty - three years in the wilderness. But the pace of change scared too many people, and sudden changes in the world economic environment threw down challenges he just could not overcome. Nor could he overcome the local political challenges thrown down by the conservative forces,and he and his colleagues seemed determined to keep providing him with the ammunition they needed to shoot him down. On 11 November 1975, they did.

              Allen Mawer's diary is a candid and sometimes disconcerting record of conquests in the air and on the ground. It recounts the highs and lows of his war. From 1941 when, aged 21, he hunted the Hun over the English Channel and experienced the perils of aerial combat and the hazards... of wartime romance. To 1943 when, living in a 'swamp that pretends to be an airstrip' south of Darwin, the Japanese flew over so infrequently he was in danger of going troppo. Allen was killed over Darwin at the end of the war. His diary offers a poignant insight into the human cost of armed conflict.

              Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago nation comprising as many as 17,000 islands spread over the same distance as Los Angeles to New York, or Perth to Sydney. Indonesia is also the most culturally diverse nation on the planet and its national motto had to be 'Unity in Div...ersity' as these islands are an extraordinary melange of races, religions, languages and cultures. Ian Burnet sets out on a journey across the archipelago to discover the rich cultural diversity of Indonesia. He describes how the early Malay people came to these islands and the influence of the Indian religions of Hinduism and Buddhism on the islands of Sumatra, Java and Bali. He discovers the heritage of the Indians, Chinese and Arabs who came here to trade in spices and sandalwood, he follows the rise of Islam and the traces of the first Europeans to enter Asia - the early Portuguese traders and priests. Travelling by bus, plane, train, ferry, boat, car and motorcycle from Java to Timor, he hops from island to island across the Indonesian archipelago and the smoking volcanoes that form its spine. Ian Burnet combines his love of adventure and travel with his knowledge of history to take us with him on a personal journey through geographic space and historical time, which will delight all armchair travellers.

              Let's go bush' These laconic words were to spark the beginning of a journey for two adventurous city kids under the spell of Banjo Paterson, and his tales of horses and men in the Australian outback. So this yarn unfolds. In his introduction to this book, Col invites the reader t...o 'ride stirrup to stirrup' with him while he tells his stories. Mad if you don't. Their adventures take place at a time when Australia was very much in transition - having got TV, Olympic Games, rock 'n' roll, and going truly urban. It is a period that also pretty well marks the end of a distinct chapter of the postwar world.

              Cloves and nutmeg are indigenous to the Spice Islands of Eastern Indonesia. The book tells of the many uses of these exotic spices and the history of their trade over a period of more than 2000 years. It describes how the Spice trade into Europe came to be dominated by Middle Eas...tern and Venetian merchants. Backed by the Crowns of Portugal and Spain explorers such as Columbus, Vasco da Gama and Magellan dreamt of sailing directly to the Spice Islands. Much of the story is told through the lives of these historical characters, as well as Sir Francis Drake, Jan Pieterzoom Coen, Pierre Poive and others, lesser known but equally important. The story revolves around the intense rivalry between the Sultans of Ternate and Tidore, their relationship with the Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and English who at different times occupied the Spice Islands.
