    Manager

    There are not enough superlatives to adequately describe this historical masterpiece from the man with the red bandanna. This must be included in all school reading lists so that children can learn about true courage and mateship. Thank you Peter FitzSimons. Looking forward to reading all your other books!

    Kokoda

    Another great read from Peter Fitzsimons. Together with Tobruk, they have helped me understand what a number of my past relatives must have gone through during their WWII service.

    A brilliant book, a must-read for all Australians.

    A huge eye-opener even for a 70+ year old whose late uncle served in PNG signals during WW2. Many surprises, but all are well supported by source documents and references. Australians need to put the Kokoda achievements at least on a par with Gallipoli, if not higher.

    Kokoda - excellent

    My husband and I read with interest, horror and tears. My father in law served in New Guinea and my husband can still recite hi dad's service number. He remembers hearing his dad tell of some of the conditions and also the visits by some of his group at home in Footscray after the war. Good men subjected to dreadful circumstances saved us. Our blessed life in Australia today is brought into sharp perspective. Thank you for the vivid and frank telling.
