    PDF/EPUB Kokoda eBook À ↠ nuiun.de kokoda free, Kokoda eBookSUMMARY of ReviewHam’s Kokoda is an excellent account of the Kokoda Track and battles in Papua The reader will gain an excellent understanding of the torturous conditions of this battle as well as the disorganized and egotistical leadership involved in the Pacific theater during the outset of the war Ham uses an exceptionally large list of superior sources including journals and government documents to ground his facts while also interjecting moments of poignancy with personal letters and diary entries of the soldiers who risked and sometimes lost life and limb for their respective countries US readers should be prepared Ham does not sugarcoat the facts which I at times found hard to swallow My only two complaints are with Ham’s poorly laid out statistics and his ineffective maps That said those complaints should not deter you from reading this fascinating elouent account of a ba

    PDF/EPUB Kokoda eBook À ↠ nuiun.de kokoda free, Kokoda eBookVery interesting and readable I spent a lot of time in the USA and visited Pacific War Museums in New Orleans and in Texas in Admiral Nimitz's hometown From memory this campaign didn't get much mention in either place I suppose the Guadalcanal battles took all the attention as these were American affairs and the role of Australians in this period of the war is naturally of less interest to Americans but this story is worth knowing and this account of it is very well written

    PDF/EPUB Kokoda eBook À ↠ nuiun.de kokoda free, Kokoda eBookI was tempted to rate this book 4 stars but there were too many bothersome things for me Consider this a 35 star ratingOverall this is a solid book on the fighting in New Guinea between the Allies primarily the Australians and the Japanese in WWII As the name implies it focuses on the Kokoda trail campaign but also covers the Buna Gona and Sanananda fighting pretty thoroughly Milne Bay is touched on; the rest of the later battles in New Guinea are not The author does a very nice job of conveying the horror of fighting a war in some of the roughest terrain on Earth
