Paul Ham ☆ 3 free read review Kokoda author Paul Ham 103 For the first time ever the compelling story of the infamous Kokoda Track campaign has been told from both sides of the conflict In a uniue and balanced portrayal renowned journalist Paul Ham recounts both the Australian and Japanese perspectives of the events on the hellish Papuan jungle trail where thousands fought and died during World War II Based on extensive research in Australia and Japan and including previously unpublished document. I uite enjoy learning about history from a different ie non American perspective and learning about the war in the Pacific has personal meaning for me because my great uncle was a POW in JapanBut it was especially interesting to be listening to this audiobook and learn about General MacArthur s role in WWII and his personality actions political moves propaganda etc right before Trump mentioned him in the first presidential debate I haven t yet read other essays currently circulating that discuss what it means or why Trump identifies with MacArthur and Patton in comparison to other US generals of history but given MacArthur s flimsy relationship with truth and uickness to take credit for others actions I really wasn t surprised to hear his name spoken by Trump And once again it s important for us to revisit and relearn history as the proverbial saying goes

Paul Ham ☆ 3 free read review Kokoda author Paul Ham 103 S Kokoda intimately relates the stories of ordinary soldiers in ′the world′s worst killing field′ and examines the role of commanders in sending ill euipped unualified Australian troops into battles that resulted in near 100 per cent casualty rates It was a war without mercy fought back and forth along 90 miles 145 km of river crossings steep inclines and precipitous descents with both sides wracked by hunger and disease and terrified. Interesting read perhaps a bit of a misnamed book as it is a history of Australia preparation or lack of preparation for the war in the Pacific and the whole Papua New Guinea campaign It is a well researched book and a goodread The only minor issue I feel the author some times gets on his soapbox and lectures to the reader on what is good background but not totally relevant to this books scope
