The battle for Kokoda raged for seven months along a single-file track that crossed some of the most rugged and inhospitable terrain in the world. Renowned wartime news cameraman, Australia's Damien Parer recorded the struggle amid great hardship and danger and successfully delivered the footage back to Australia. In September 1942, two movies were released based on Parer's war footage. Kokoda Frontline went on to win an Oscar for Best Documentary.
