Kokoda was a defining battle for Australia, where a small force of young, ill-equipped young men engaged an experienced and hitherto unstoppable Japanese force on a narrow, precarious jungle track. This book tells the Kokoda story in a gripping and moving style.
A superb blend of authority and gripping storytelling - history at its best.
