    Project Details

    Project Description

    This project will redress the remarkable lack of comprehensive and systematic analysis of Australia's 310 trials of more than 800 Japanese defendants by military tribunal post-World War II pursuant to the War Crimes Act 1945. In partnership with the Australian War Memorial and Defence Legal this project will result in a scholarly Law Reports Series of every trial in its historical context. The publication of the Series will facilitate unprecedented access to an important and relatively under-researched phase in Australia's military legal history.
