    The Bombing of Darwin was a battle in the Pacific war during World War II. It occurred on Darwin, Northern of Australia, on 19 February 1942. Allied aircraft replacements could reach Southeast Asia only by ship or by an air bridge in which Darwin was a vital link. The Japanese therefore acted to deny the Allies the use of Darwin by launching a massive carrier raid against the port on 19 February 1942. Some 190 aircraft from four of Nagumo's carriers and another 54 land-based bombers based in the Netherlands East Indies participated in the Raid.
