Kokoda Wallaby PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Kokoda Wallaby free pdf Stan Bisset was a real hero, both in battle on a rugby pitch and in desperate armed combat against the Japanese during the Second World War. As the last surviving member of the ill-fated 1939 Wallaby touring team to England, he was a rugby legend. In the Middle East and on the Kokoda Track, he was one of Australia's most distinguished and heroic combatants. But above all else, he personified so many attributes of the Australian soldier: moral and physical courage, compassion, selflessness, independence, loyalty, resourcefulness, devotion, and humour. Stan Bisset's remarkable life story is told by former Australian soldier and Afghanistan veteran Andrew James. This is a truly inspiring book that crosses generations.
