This is the story of Australians at war at home and abroad in the six years 1939 to 1945. Almost one million Australians out of a population of nearly seven million joined the armed forces.
Their contribution to the allied forces was only possible by the support of those Australians at home: the civilians who took the jobs of their husbands, fathers, sons and brothers, and those that pealed millions of onions and potatoes to feed the men and women serving overseas.
