‘After an incredible opening and a brutal account from WWII New Guinea, readers are kept guessing as to where they will go next in the islands of the Pacific. They are then spun sideways to Australia and to Japan to revisit the scene of wartime crimes. I found myself on a complex journey that I did not want to stop.’ Tim Page, author and photojournalist
