Publisher Description

`an engrossing narrative, beautifully controlled by a master storyteller' Michael McKernan, Sydney Morning Herald

The bestselling, acclaimed, authoritative account of one of the most famous battles in Australian military history ? now established as a classic.

For Australians, Kokoda is the iconic battle of World War II, yet few people know just what happened ? and just what our troops achieved. In his bestselling book, Peter FitzSimons tells the Kokoda story in his distinctive gripping style. 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.
