This reprint of the 1967 unit history of the 36th Australian Infantry Battalion again makes available the proud story of this unit. They played a part in the Kokoda campaign before being airlifted to Sanananda where they fought in the savage battles of Northern Papua and in the process lost many good men.

As the war progressed they were sent to New Britain and spent many arduous months in that campaign, until the war ended and the occupation of Rabaul followed. The book now contains a post-war epilogue and an index.
