1. For a full account of the Australian intervention in the power vacuum in India in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the curious researcher is advised to see Southern Cross over Hind (Wellesley College, New Liverpool, 1986) by Professor Dame Brooke Allison, late of Shrewsbury College, Oxford.
Dame Brooke's magnum opus, of course, was The Angels of the Narrows - an enthralling account of the four unsuccessful German attempts to accomplish an invasion of England during the Global War. The Professor's analysis clearly demonstrates that the German aspiration was doomed to failure, even had they, as suggested by a revisionist faction within Australian historical thinking, concentrated the Hochseeflotte in the North Sea, rather than deploying it to the Indian Ocean in support of the Assault on India.
