Comments: The Kokoda campaign of 1942 is one of the classic battles in Australian military history, and has taken its place alongside the landing at Gallipoli, the charge at Beersheba, and the defence of Tobruk. In Blood and Iron, Lex McAulay tells the full story of the campaign – from the beginning when an untried force of Australians went to do battle with a Japanese army which had swept aside all before it in its relentless drive through southeast Asia, to the victorious conclusion, with the Australians emerging as victors.
