The Essence of Kokoda is a small hardback version of the story of Kokoda, aimed at those who don't want to wade through a massive history book but want to know about this wonderful story.

Fully illustrated throughout (with many never-before-seen images), The Essence of Kokoda captures the mateship, courage, grit and determination which allowed the Kokoda Diggers to give us the legacy we enjoy today - prosperity and freedom.

Patrick hopes The Essence of Kokoda will be an introduction to the remarkable story of Kokoda and help make it accessible to the Australian heartland.
