$110 inc GST

A subscription to this case study includes a one-off payment only and does not expire.

Students are asked in Year 10 history to investigate one of the most significant episodes in Australia’s Second World War experience. A very different and exciting way to do this is to investigate the experiences of the Australian Commandos – their birth and secret training base at Tidal River and clandestine operations in the Pacific War such as Timbered Knoll and Operation Jaywick.
