Comments: The “Battle of Brisbane” was violence between United States (U.S.) military personnel on one side and Australian servicemen and civilians on the other, in Brisbane, Australia on 26-27 November 1942, during World War II. Australia and the US were Allies at the time. By the time the violence had been quelled one Australian soldier was dead, and hundreds of Australians and US servicemen had been injured. News reports of these incidents were suppressed during the war. Now a scarce title.
