Black Diggers: Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders in the Second World War, The
This important book explores the war effort of Aboriginal and Islander Australians during the Second World War, and the reasons their contribution has gone unrecognised for so long. For the very first time, here is a comprehensive account of the work of black Australians during the years when their country faced the Japanese threat. Despite suspicion and prejudice they earned a place within the digger legend.
Dr Bob Hall has unearthed previously unscrutinised records in Commonwealth and State archives, and travelled throughout Australia interviewing Aboriginal, Islander and white Australians.
