In 1942 a small band of Australian soldiers overcame seemingly insurmountable odds to defeat the Japanese Army along the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea. Just as Gallipoli symbolised the ANZAC spirit in the First World War, the battle for the Kokoda Track was its Second World War equivalent.
In Kokoda Spirit, Patrick Lindsay takes us on a journey that explores the track as it is today and how it was in 1942. With his unique storytelling he reconnects us with the past while taking us on the gruelling journey that is Kokoda.
