As it is the 70th anniversary of the bombing of the city of Darwin in Australia’s north, I thought I would re-publish my 1995 honors thesis on the subject completed at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. The thesis is titled ‘the Question of Hajime’ and is a narrative-style history that explores the capture of a Japanese Prisoner of War, Hajime Toyashima, on Melville Island, after being shot down by local forces. It it a wonderful story and I hope you enjoy my rendering of it. This is not the best version I have, but unfortunately it is the only one I can still locate (just click on the .pdf symbol below. 91pgs).
You may find the .html version easier to read; although orange was fashionable that year.
