On February 19th 1942, Japan sent 242 aircraft to attack targets in the Australian city of Darwin. It was the first and largest foreign attack on the nation and began a series of bombings. The city was not well defended, so Allied losses were high while Axis casualties were low. While Japan lost only 7 aircraft, Australia lost 10 ships (with another 25 damaged), 23 aircraft, and 250-320 people were killed (with 300-400 injured).
