          Abstract

          In April 1957, Menzies announced the alignment of Australia’s defence procurement with America. He explained that “defence policy and economic policy must run together” and, despite Australia’s cultural Britishness, only America could provide the “massive power” to protect Australia: It seems clear that in the event of war we will be fighting side by side with the United States … Common sense dictates that under these circumstances, we should pay considerable attention to the logistic aspect of war, and standardize so far as we can with the Americans. Though this is a wholeheartedly British nation this is not a heresy. It merely recognizes the facts of war.
