This is the story of one of the Australians who patrolled isolated parts of New Guinea during World War II, in dangerous proximity to the enemy- but far from the aid of their own forces. The hardships of patrolling in the jungle were many, and one of the worst aspects was the continuous uncertainty of where the Japanese would be found -- in front, behind, or waiting in the next village. Fear was a constant companion, and danger when it came had to be faced by men already tried almost to the limits of their physical strength. This book tells an impressive story of endurance and quiet courage. It also gives an unforgettable picture of the savage beauty of New Guinea, and of the charm and nobility of its people at their best.
