A UQP World War II Classic - a special release for ANZAC Day. Takes place in the jungles of Bougainville, in a similar theatre to Peter Pinney's great trilogy Signaller Johnston's Secret War (ISBN 0702229938). Lightening-quick gun battles and jungle ambushes; a young soldier's journey told in a gripping style with a signature Australian humour. Contains scenes reminiscent of the recent successful film Thin Red Line about the Pacific War. Originally published in a very modest edition in 1983 by the War Memorial. Now revised and updated with striking new illustrations.
