Random House Australia, Milsons Point, Sydney - first edition ISBN:0091825571, 1992. hardcover, 5¾" x 8¾", with dust jacket. Previous owner's name to front endpaper. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Australian soldiers bore the brunt of the battles of Buna and Gona which followed immediately after those along Kokoda (in late 1942, early 1943); but these battle were fought on coastal plains rather than in the mountains - where the Japanese had time to fortify their positions, and the swamps were formidable obstacles. At the end of the campaign, the Japanese had either fled or been killed. Here are tales of heroism, blunders and barbarism - and based on interviews, diaries from both sides.
