AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Black Diggers explores the war effort of Aboriginal and Islander Australians during the Second World War and the reasons their contribution has gone unrecognised for so long.' This book is a comprehensive account of the work of Indigenous Australians 'during the years when their country faced the Japanese threat. Despite suspicion and prejudice they earned a place within the digger legend'. (Source: Back cover, Aboriginal Studies Press, 1997 edition)
