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. About the Author Peter FitzSimons is well known as a journalist, TV personality and author. His bestsellers include NANCY WAKE, NED KELLY, BATAVIA, EUREKA and KOKODA. He lives in Sydney and loves talking to the media - any media, anywhere - as much as they love talking to him. Promotional Information A superb blend of authority and gripping storytelling - history at its best. Reviews 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
