In a unique and balanced portrayal, renowned journalist Paul Ham recounts both the Australian and Japanese perspectives of the events on the hellish Papuan jungle trail where thousands fought and died during World War II.

It was a war without mercy, fought back and forth along 90 miles of river crossings, steep inclines and precipitous descents, with both sides wracked by hunger and disease, and terrified of falling into enemy hands. Defeat was unthinkable: the Australian soldier was fighting for his homeland against an unyielding aggressor; the Japanese ordered to fight to the death in a bid to conquer 'Greater East Asia'.

Paul Ham captures the spirits of those soldiers and commanders who clashed in this war of exceptional savagery, and tells of the brave souls on both sides of the campaign whose courage and sacrifices must never be forgotten.

Listener Opinions

    " More of an accurate historical book told more from the australian point of view. P.F. has written another book that involves the japenese story as well. Pretty good. "

    " This book is vitally important to Australia and Japan. I think it is the superior to any other written on this particular theatre. It is an unapologetic account of one of the fiercest battles fought in the Second World War. Phenomenally well researched and well written. "

    " Extensively researched and includes information which had previously been classified. Gives a much better and more balanced understanding of the events including the political decisions as well as the war theatre in PNG from of 1942 to 1943. Highly recommended. "

    " Such a balanced view of such an horrific episode. The personal stories and detail make this a fascinating read; I never lost interest, and not a type of book I would normally read. "
