An account of pivotal moments in Australian history.

During the Second World War, the Pacific was the site of one of the most grueling fighting known to man, and for a time, Australia was at the forefront of the struggle against the Axis. With her new book, “The Enemy Knocks” (published by Xlibris AU), author Patricia Evans invites her readers to remember the historic events of this time, and the sacrifices made by Allied servicemen, as they fought and died for the fate of the free world.

The origins of this book came during a holiday in Darwin, Northern Territory, when Evans was overwhelmed at the records of Second World War activity that occurred there, and what she perceived as the ignorance of most Australians on such an important part of their history. She then spent several years studying the events in Darwin and the Top End of Australia during the bombing by the Japanese and all that followed, which she compiled in the pages of “The Enemy Knocks.” In her book, readers will learn about the contributions of the Australian forces in the fight against Imperial Japan, and how their heroic deeds would become as historically significant as the deeds of their fellow brothers in arms who fought elsewhere during the Second World War.

“The Enemy Knocks” is an account of pivotal moments in Australian history. Evans’ book may be of interest for readers curious about the nation’s past as well as military trivia, and even veterans of the war or their relatives. In her book, she successfully exposes many historical facts that she says have been previously hidden from the citizens of Australia, by the government of the day.
