Comments: The Signature follows the path of a young Australian volunteer in the Australian Army who is posted as a member of the 2/22 Battalion to Rabaul in New Brittain, an island of the coast of mainland New Guinea.
Within months the Japanese capture Rabaul (January 1942) and the order ‘every man for himself’ is given. With no plans in place for either evacuation or escape, the very ill-equipped Australian soldiers are either captured, killed or left to escape into the jungle.
In this, his first novel, Vic Stone draws on his own experiences n Rabaul and Australia.
