So what made news in 1942? Obviously it was during WW2, and it was this year that the nation realised that the Japanese were really coming. Governments became Big Brothers and took over almost everything. Men were conscripted, many sent to their death. Everything worthwhile was rationed, boy scouts collected aluminium and iron, all private boats and yachts were seized by the navy. Jazz was giving way to crooners, Saturday horse racing was almost off the calendar, Test cricket had gone, beer was very hard to get, and houses and cars were blacked out at night. Worst of all, the Japanese were getting ever closer, and it seemed certain that Australia would fall to them.

Each book meticulously crafted to delve into the remarkable events that shaped the lives of real people. These thought-provoking books are not only intended to ignite a sense of wonder for forgotten times, but also to spark engaging conversations between generations about our shared history and heritage.
