Although the U. S. naval bottom part was under attack, the rest of the Japanese navy and air force struck at Singapore, Indo-China and other ports. Of particular interest has been the tropical North Australian city of Darwin which they attacked in fury two months after Pearl Harbor.
"Australia" refers to this in a flowing fury of military ruthlessness, in this case a terror attack on terrified innocents. This movie aren't going to be greeted well in Japan.
The finishing is, yes, very emotional. But it's a sentimentality that challenges our pseudo-sophisticated kneejerk responses. This is quality stuff. There is little which to complain except for a minor unjustifiably extended scene occasionally.
We need more such unpretentious, honest movies. Go for it.

In the event the settlers arrive in Virginia the Powhatans cautiously observe them, hoping they mean no harm but will leave soon. But alas, one of the Powhatan warriors is spotted and then a battle ensues. Chief Powhatan declares that this 'pale face' white men are dangerous with zero one is to go near them.
Although two groups are busy shooting at each other, Pocahontas and John Smith meet and patiently know about each other.
