Join military historian Mark Johnston to hear a unique and powerful account of the everyday experiences of a small unit of Australian soldiers on the front line, from their enlistment in the dark days of 1940 to the end of World War II.
No ordinary soldiers, these men were members of Don Company of the Second 43rd Battalion, part of the famous 9th Australian Division, which — during campaigns in Tobruk, El Alamein, New Guinea, and Borneo — sustained more casualties and won more medals than any other Australian division.
