Australia in World War Two: An Introduction


In this course, we engage in a broad overview of Australia’s  involvement in World War Two.  It consists of an introductory video of 28 minutes duration followed by a workbook involving 7 learning modules.  These include a family research project, an Ozatwar research task, activities centered around Damien Parer’s famous 1943 film “Kokoda Front Line!” and the documentary “Kokoda-The Men who saved Australia.”  There is also an RAAF research project, a module on the Z Force Commando base on Fraser Island and an investigation of the mysterious events surrounding the sinking of HMAS Sydney and the finding of its lone survivor.
