Description

The Bombing of Darwin – An Awkward Truth is a 55-minute Australian made documentary exploring why the Australian Government kept the Bombing of Darwin on 19 February 1942 a secret and why the Australian military was totally unprepared for the attack.

Inspired by the book by Peter Grose, this fascinating documentary is presented to mark the 75th anniversary of the attack. Drawing on long-hidden documents, and incorporating rarely-seen archival footage, eyewitness accounts from survivors and expert commentary.

The Bombing of Darwin reveals the true story surrounding the attack, as well as the disturbing events that occurred in the aftermath.
