Kokoda Track: 101 Days

By Peter Macinnis

This book about the Kokoda Track is part of the award-winning non-fiction series for teens, The Drum.

In July 1942, a large and well-trained Japanese army landed at Buna, on the north coast of New Guinea. Their aim was to capture Port Moresby. Their route was the Kokoda Track. The only force that stood in their way was a small, poorly-trained group of Australian militia. This is their story.

About the author

Peter MacInnis is a science writer who lives in Sydney. He began writing science talks for radio in 1985 and has been at it ever since, but his main job for more than thirty years was as an educator, either as a teacher, or as a bureaucrat, or in one of two museums that he worked in, and most recently, writing science content for an online encyclopaedia. Peter has now officially "retired from teaching" and works full-time as a writer, in between travelling as much as he can.
