Photographs in the Mud

Written by Dianne Wolfer and illustrated by Brian Harrison-Lever


The Kokoda Track, 1942. Jack and Hoshi are soldiers from opposing armies, who meet in battle and discover they have much more in common than they could ever realise. Told from the point of view of two soldiers, one Australian, the other Japanese, Photographs in the Mud reveals the personal human tragedy of war for both the soldiers and their loved ones at home.

‘… a stunning book that will force readers, young and old, to assess their own beliefs of just war theory. Not to be missed.’ Reading Time
