Comments: An account of the campaign of Australian forces on the Kokoda Trail against the Japanese.

Retreat from Kokoda is a story of courage, skill and endurance – of a defiance that sowed the seeds of victory. It is also an indictment. Raymond Paull sees the whole pattern of the campaign in the perspective of history, and with the authority of painstaking research. As well as the story of Australian soldiers in the jungles of New Guinea during World War II, this tells the story of how the enemy suffered and starved and was finally defeated.
