Comments: The book examines the early thinking for Darwin’s defence and also the political and military climate in which the Darwin fortress was gradually built upon, up to and beyond the outbreak of the Pacific War. The development of the fixed defences is examined, as is the movement of troops to the area for the installing and manning of various defence equipment protecting the Port of Darwin.
