    My father in law was the Acting CSM of Sam Templeton's B Company, the first Australian troops to go over the Kokoda Track. He served on the Track and later at Gona, Buna and Sanananda. I've done a lot of reading about the Track, including my father in law's own (unpublished) memoir, the 39th Battalion's account, the popular books by Peter Fitzsimons and Paul Ham and Nishimura's story as told in Charles Happell's The Bone Man of Kokoda. From the perspective of the horrendous battles on the Kokoda Track and at Gona, Buna and Sanananda, Rick Antonson writes sensitively and intelligently (though there are a couple of small errors). His accounts of how he came to walk the Track and of his experiences in doing it are also extraordinary and very well told. I was very impressed with the trek leaders, Brett and Yeoy, and their respect for the sacred ground on which they walked, with Rick's telling of Monk's story which unfolds through the book, and with the respect and esteem with which the porters were held. It's hard to imagine how this book could be better.

    Thanks for your feedback!
