About this item
Aged only eighteen, Australian soldier Ryan was sent out alone and untrained to conduct intelligence patrols for months on end, deep in the jungles of Japanese-occupied New Guinea. Isolated, and surrounded by hostile forces, Ryan overcame loneliness, fatigue and fear with quiet courage. He recognized the rugged mountain landscape's stupendous beauty, and admired the charm and resourcefulness of its people.
