Based upon novel of the same title by the late Australian author John Hepworth. Original writer Ellis was a friend of Hepworth's. The novel was written in 1946, but not published in novel form until 1995 (first published as a serial in The Sunday Herald in late 1949). Set in mid-1945 between VE Day and the fall of Japan, this is the story of an Australian battalion sent to New Guinea to force the beleaguered Japanese to retreat. What they find when they arrive is a land covered with the corpses of Americans and Japanese soldiers from previous battles and starving and pitiful Japanese soldiers who regardless continue to fight to the bloody end, forcing some of the Australian soldiers to ponder the meaning (or meaninglessness) of war.
This is going to be earnest with a capital E. I'm also sure, it'll all turn out to be the UKs fault a load of Aussies die.
