The Japanese midget submarine raid on Sydney Harbour on the night of 31 May 1942 provoked real fear of enemy invasion of Australia — particularly following the bombing of Darwin a few months earlier. This book presents the graphic story behind the submarine attack on Sydney from both Australian and Japanese viewpoints.

Twenty years after the end of World War II, I returned to Japan and met Takeo Yamashita at an official Australian reception in Osaka. I was a former prisoner of war of the Japanese in Singapore, Thailand and Japan and Takeo Yamashita was a former prisoner of war of the Australians in the Celebes. We talked and found we had a mutual agreement on the stupidity of war and a common desire for future friendship between Australia and Japan. Out of that discussion the idea of this book was born.
