Would you listen to Kokoda (by Peter FitzSimons) again? Why?

Yes
An incredible tale of human endurance and fortitude

What other book might you compare Kokoda (by Peter FitzSimons) to, and why?

Torbruk was similarly inspiring. This writer rates equal to the other great military history writers such as Ambrose and Hastings

What about Lewis FitzGerald’s performance did you like?

Accent gave credence to the story

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Respect for all those who endured so many hardships and terrors to secure our future

Any additional comments?

Completely captivated listened to this intensely whilst driving on holiday over 2 days.
Absorbed into the moment throughout and left at times as exhausted emotionally as those being spoken about. A great listen.
