Description

George Davies was a member of the first contingent of New Zealanders who left Italy to join the British Commonwealth Occupation Force (BCOF) in Japan. In this penetrating study he throws a searchlight into the shadowy origins and outcomes of BCOF. He provides a unique analysis of the relative contributions of Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom to World War II in the Middle East and the Pacific; and of the tensions in Anglo-Australasian relations before and during the occupation of Japan.A well documented and realistic account of a rare experience in social engineering, it charts the establishment of a working democratic constitutional monarchy in a country devastated by war and years of authoritarian rule. Through recently accessed information from documents on 'behind the scenes' activities, this fascinating contribution to military history reconstructs a sense of the dynamics of the times.
