Hell’s Battlefield author, Phillip Bradley, who will be at SMSA next Tuesday 4th September for a free public talk, speaks to the Business Spectator about Kokoda and other battles in Papua New Guinea during World War II.
[M]uch of the file imagery routinely used for television programs on the Kokoda campaign stem from much later battles, [Bradley] said.
“They often show the wounded digger being brought across the creek and the attacks at Timbered Knoll. It’s important to put them into context,” Bradley said.
“They use the same images and say this is Kokoda and the photo is not taken there at all.”
