This is the final volume on the stategic history of the Antipodean Empire which began with "The Rise and Fall of the Singapore Naval Base"(1979) and "New Zealand Prepares for War" (1988). This study contains a detailed analysis of American, British, Australian and New Zealand strategic planning during the early years of the Cold War, including their plans for fighting World War III in the Middle East and the diplomatic negotiations leading up to the security treaty signed by Australia, New Zealand and the United States in 1951. Furthermore, it considers the problems raised by Britain's exclusion from the Anzus and the subsequent creation of Seato and the British Commonwealth Far East Strategic Reserve in Malaya.
