Outback Corridor World War II Lines of Communication across Australia
From Adelaide and Mt. Isa to Darwin, Northern Territory Wartime Experiences, and Army Women's Services in the NT, by Alan Smith.
Outback Corridor tells how hundreds of thousands of men and women made contact with Outback Australia by being part of the vital World War II Lines of Communication across the Continent from Adelaide and Mt. Isa to Darwin - by the old Central Australia Railway, by convoys on the old North/south road, and by the old Northern Australia Railway.
It reports on...
- The making of the North/South and East/West roads by AWC, CCC and State Highway workers, and the essential cartage of troops and supplies by convoys of Army Transport units.
- The historic upgrading of the Overland Telegraph Line by the PMG men and Army Signals to meet the Defence build up.
- American Army transportation from Mt. Isa and other involvements on the NT.
- The vital services of Army Women, Nurses, AAMWS and AWAS.
