The '"Battle of Brisbane"' is the name given to violence between United States (US) military personnel on one side and Australian servicemen and civilians on the other, in Brisbane, Australia on November 26-27, 1942, during World War II. Australia and the US were Allies at the time. By the time the violence had been quelled one Australian soldier was dead, and hundreds of Australians and US servicemen had been injured. News reports of these incidents were suppressed during the war. In 1942-45, many US personnel were stationed in and around Brisbane, which was the headquarters for General Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Allied Commander, South West Pacific Area. Many buildings and facilities around Brisbane were given over to the usage of the U.S. military.
