For Australians, Kokoda is the iconic battle of World War II, yet few people know just what happened - and just what our troops achieved.
Now, bestselling author Peter FitzSimons tells the Kokoda story in a gripping, moving story for all Australians. Conditions on the track were hellish - rain was constant, the terrain close to inhospitable, food and ammunition supplies were practically non-existent and the men constantly battled malaria and dysentery, as well as the Japanese.
Kokoda was a defining battle for Australia - a small force of young, ill-equipped Australians engaged a highly experienced and hitherto unstoppable Japanese force on a narrow, precarious jungle track - and defeated them.
'an engrossing narrative, beautifully controlled by a master storyteller'
- Sydney Morning Herald
'This reads like fiction, but it is all fact'
- Lieutenant Allan 'Kanga' Moore, 39th Battalion.
