Field Guide to the Kokoda Track

By Bill James

The story of Kokoda – the heroic defence of our nation against a powerful foreign invader – is finally gaining its rightful place at the forefront of Australians’ consciousness. ‘History,’ according to a noted historian, ‘is very much about a sense of place’, and history is always close by on the Kokoda Track.

Now, after years of painstaking research, and with aid of the fast-thinning ranks of both Australian and Japanese veterans, Bill James has uncovered these ‘lost battlefields’ plus more. For those wishing to fully understand the history of the Kokoda Track, the book will be of great interest. For those intending to undertake the gruelling trek, it is essential reading, and includes a waterproof trek map (540 mm x 408 mm 2-sided). The revised edition now includes the grave or memorial information for the fallen.
