Kokoda Wallaby: The Rugby International Who Became a Kokoda Hero
"A great story that is long overdue in the telling." (Paul Ham)
Stan Bisset was a real hero, both on the rugby pitch and in desperate armed combat against the Japanese during the Second World War. As a member of the ill-fated 1939 Wallaby touring team he was a rugby legend. In the Middle East and on the Kokoda Track, he was one of Australia's most distinguished and heroic combatants. Above all else, he personified so many attributes of the Australian soldier: moral and physical courage, compassion, selflessness, independence, loyalty, resourcefulness, devotion and humour.
Stan Bisset's remarkable life story is told by former Australian soldier and Afghanistan veteran Andrew James.
