The first volume in a trilogy on Australia's wartime relations with Great Britain, it discusses the behind-the-scenes struggle for power between the British and Australian Prime Ministers, Winston Churchill and Robert Menzies, particularly in 1941.

The two leaders' conflicting demands centred around Menzies' attempt to protect the integrity of the Empire in its pre-1939 form and Churchill's policy of pursuing total victory, regardless of possible consequences to the Empire.

This edition includes some minor changes and incorporates some additional material, mainly in the introduction. Includes photographs, chapter references, bibliography and index.

The other titles in the trilogy are 'Reluctant Nation' and 'The Great Betrayal'. Author is an ARC Senior Research Fello at LaTrobe University.
