Fascinating and revelatory, how World War II transformed the Australian Army into one of the best, if not the best, jungle fighting groups in the world

How did the Australian Army transform itself from a military force totally unprepared for conflict of any kind in 1939 into a professional, experienced, and highly skilled jungle warfare force by 1945? Jungle Warriors explores how the 2nd AIF evolved from fighting European and desert wars, in open country and often with large numbers of troops, to master the very close warfare of jungle combat. It investigates the extraordinary array of changes to weapons, equipment, tactics, and training. It also reveals the painful lessons learned and the inadequate planning that resulted in the unnecessary deaths of so many Australian men. Following the story from the training camps in Australia on to the battlefields of North Africa and the Mediterranean to Milne Bay, Kokoda, and final victory in Borneo, Bougainville, and New Guinea, this is a comprehensive and coherent interrogation of Australia's jungle warfare experience. It also makes significant contribution to World War II military history.
