AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'On March 3rd 1942 Japanese Naval forces launch a daring raid on the township of Broome, Australia. 9 Mitsubishi Zero fighters fly an astonishing 900km from their home base at Koepang, Timor, to the township - a feat of engineering never attempted before. Prior to the attack it is rumoured that Japanese spies are operating out of Broome using the large Japanese pearling fleet as cover - rumours hidden from the Australian public by a Government policy of denial. Golden Trevally is a drama that sweeps across the Kimberley Desert, takes you into the depths of the Timor Sea, and reaches across the skies of China.' (Back cover)
