The Architect of Kokoda

Robyn Kienzle, Forward by Neil McDonald.

Bert Kienzle - the man who made the Kokoda Trail. 

When the Japanese invaded Papua New Guinea in 1942, the Australian soldiers sent to hold them back thought victory impossible. One man, Bert Kienzle was charged with the seemingly impossible task of establishing a trail across the Owen Stanley Range. His endeavours in surveying and establishing a transport route changed the course of history and made Australia’s victory over the Japanese possible.
