Kokoda Track

I recently stumbled across references to a six-month battle fought in New Guinea between Australian and Japanese forces during the early days of WWII. The battle was fought up and down a trail — the Kokoda Track —  through some of the most rugged country on this tropical island. It’s a fascinating story of courage and perseverence against overwhelming odds, one that Aussies remember with pride. They even made a movie about it.
