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, best-selling 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.

Shivers down the spine
Just like Tobruk, also by Peter FitzSimons, Kokoda is a little piece of art when it comes to keep the memory of the poor buggars alive who wrote history. Its those little stories that make mankind great and should never be forgotten. Lewis FitzGerald and his Aussie Strain give the whole audio book a special note - including his great display of Pidgin English. The audio book is a little gem.
