Synopsis: The story of the five battles that changed Australia forever, this compelling narrative incorporates hundreds of interviews with the soldiers who fought at Kokoda, Milne Bay, Gona, Buna, and Sanananda in 1942 and 1943. Revealed are the very real and engaging experiences of Generals MacArthur and Blamey and other senior Australian commanders who sacrificed many of their senior field officers as scapegoats to protect their own positions, assisted in the making of false legends, and lied about the outcome of the men who fought the battles.

About the Author: Peter Brune is the author of The Spell Broken, Those Ragged Bloody Heroes, and We Band of Brothers, and is the coauthor of 200 Shots: Damien Parer and George Silk and The Australians at War in New Guinea.

Book Description Allen & Unwin, Sydney, 2004. Soft cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. ix + 691 pages, b/w photographs, battle maps, bibliography, index. In 1942 and early 1943 Papua New Guinea was 'a bastard of a place' to fight a war. Peter Brune gives the reader the final, all-encompassing story of the five battles that changed Australia forever. His compelling narrative resonates with the voices of both the well-trained AIF volunteer and the young Militia conscript who triumphed together. He interviewed hundreds of these soldiers and himself travelled the treacherous terrain and bloody battlegrounds where so many of their mates perished. Peter reveals the inside story of how Generals MacArthur and Blamey sacrificed many of the senior Australian field commanders as scapegoats to protect their own positions. A Bastard of a Place restores Milne Bay, Gona, Buna and Sanananda to their rightful place beside Kokoda to what they should collectively be for all Australians - sacred ground. Book.
