"Australia's finest war memoir."—Peter Pierce

At age eighteen, Peter Ryan was an intelligence operative, patrolling isolated regions of New Guinea during World War II.

Isolated, with Japanese forces closing in, he endured the hardships of the jungle without adequate supplies, a radio, or even a proper map. His very survival depended on forging relationships with the local tribes, and every choice could lead to catastrophe. For his work, Ryan was awarded the Military Medal and mentioned in dispatches.

Ryan's gripping account has become a classic memoir of the war in the Pacific, rarely out of print in forty years.
