Canberra, 1st ed., 1944. 208 pp., cold., frontis., + 17 cold., plates + cold., maps + b&w photo-plates + ills. D.j., 28 x 22cm. Some loss to d.j., o/w V.G. This volume, as with the two titles above, is an illustrated notebook on the life of Australians in the Second World War and it was printed during the war for the families and friends of the fighting men back home. Almost all of the contents were the work of the men on active service. Detailed reports are given on most of the actions and operations in which the A.I.F. took place. This volume tells the story of the military operations of the Australian Army in 1944 in the jungle and kunai, mountains and swamps of New Guinea. What emerges from these accounts is the character of terrain and climate that these men had to adapt to and endure.
