Walking wounded

Brian Freeman with Tony Park

Brian Freeman, former special forces soldier, Kokoda Track record-breaker and discoverer of the lost battlefield of Kokoda, had a belief that walking the track could have a special benefit for wounded Australian servicemen and the families of those killed in Afghanistan or Iraq.

In 2012, he proved his theory right by organising two treks that produced some extraordinary results for those who took part – from the former commando who lost both legs in Afghanistan to the father who lost his son there. Walking Wounded is the inspiring account of the men and women on those treks – how walking in the footsteps of those who fought on the track has helped them piece their lives back together. It's also a deep insight into their service, the actions that saw them wounded and the slow process of recovery and rehabilitation that rarely features in our news stories.

Written with compassion and true empathy, Walking Wounded is as important as it is moving, and paves the way for the treks with veterans and their families to continue.
