Description - Break Of Day by Tony Palmer

No one thought the Japanese army would come this way, but there they are, thousands of them. On the Kokoda track, in the damp, disease-filled jungles of Papua New Guinea, Murray Barrett and the rest of the 39th battalion are the only thing standing between Australia and a Japanese invasion. Everyone thinks they'll be slaughtered, and Murray finds that he will have to fight along side his worst enemy . . . Does Murray have the courage to do what he has to do? And what is courage, after all? Break of Day is a powerful, insightful novel about love, war and duty, and a legendary piece of Australian history.
