Summary: "Most of us know the tale of the Kokoda Track, in the darkest hours of the Pacific War. But far fewer know of the Australian pilots and aircrew of 75 Squadron who first fought over the jungles of New Guinea and Port Morseby, six months before the land campaign began. Storm Over Kokoda tells how Australian crews, in a handful of Hudson bombers and Catalina flying boats, took the fight to the Japanese. Author Peter Ewer draws on eyewitness accounts and combat reports to shed new and exciting light on a neglected episode in Australian military history. It?s a compelling tale of men at war ? on both sides ? in a harsh physical environment. This was a time when every flight proved every man a hero." -- Publisher description.
