Answer 1

Australia and America did not have a big alliance, if no allience at all before 1941-1942. The way Australia and America got an alliance was that Australia was feeling threatened by Japan entering the war [joining with Germany, Italy, and the French]. We had a fall out with Britain Because Australia wanted to bring the 8th division home but Britain wanted them to go elsewhere(I think it was Burma.) So we went and turned to America for help. And America was very willing because they wanted to get back at japan because of pearl harbor. Australia was very weakened and without the Americans help Australia would've lost the battle and been invaded. Pearl harbor was almost beneficial to Australia otherwise there would have been no help from America. they won the battle against the Japanese in the coral sea And Australia and America have been good friends ever since.

Answer 2

While the above answer is mostly correct, Japan actually did not actually intend to invade Australia as it was beyond their capabilites and resources.

What was the relationship between Australia and America during 1941-1972?

Australia loved America and America loved that Australia loved it. The time span is between World War II when Australia began to switch dependence from England to America and the Viet Nam War, which Australia joined for many reasons including wanting to support America. If you want to do further research investigate the ANZUS treaty (Australia, New Zealand, United States) which Australia signed to allow the US to move nuclear submarines into her ports and also the Pine Gap US base on Australian soil. Australia as a people did not love the Americans, the government allowed us instalations because at that time Australia was part of England and the us and England had an allience treaty. after Australia got its independence from England, there was no treaty with America and Australia until the 1990's a treaty with Australia was signed only after the us was run out of the Philippines and the usa had no where else in the south pacific to be. Australia also went to Vietnam , not to support usa , but because again at that time they were part of England.
