Britain's war with Germany rallies the Empire to her sides, young Australians volunteer and are sent into battle.

The true horror of war hits home. Darwin is attacked by the Japanese and the brits are unable to defend Singapore.

Episode 3: Saviours, Lovers, Heroes
The Tanks are here! Aussie women are charmed but the Aussie men resent them. Life is very hard with little leisure.

Episode 4: The Long War
The war years have changed for ever the way Australians see themselves and their future relationship to America.
