Like the mainland US (discounting Pearl Harbor) Australia was not actually invaded in WWII, but like the US they had men fighting all over the world. Principally, they fought in the Pacific in places like Burma and Singapore, which is why so many of them ended up being brutalized in Japanese prisoner of war camps. But there were also Australians in places like North Africa. At the time, Australia was part of the British Commonwealth, and the British Government was able to call on the services of Australian troops wherever they were needed. Phil
