Kokoda tells the story, from the corridors of power to the blood stained battlefields of the Papua Guinea highlands. From day 1 of the Kokoda campaign the fighting was politicised, mismanaged, mythologised and venerated.
Kokoda delves behind the myths of war to tell the story from both sides of the conflict. It provides an authentic and comprehensive account of the desperate confusion of war, the intricate connections between the frontline soldiers and military high command. In addition, there are the political agendas that influenced the campaign and continue to percolate through contemporary Australian society today.
