In 1941, Australia came as close to being invaded as we ever gave with a trio of mini-submarines entering Sydney Harbour and keeping the ships there occupied for almost 5 hours before the assorted navies gave up and fled.

Join Holly and Matthew as they look into the only time Sydney was ever bombed, and how it could have been Auckland instead…

*SPOILER correction (for a 70yo battle…): M-24 hid to the right of the Sydney Opera House, near what’s now known as the Shipyards, not behind the Harbour Bridge.
