This story covers the little known and allegedly shameful story of the evacuation of Kieta on the east coast of Bougainville Island in January 1942.

With survivors hounded by rumour and innuendos of panic and cowardice, "The Truth About Kieta" brings all the evidence together, including new interviews with survivors and extracts from personal diaries, maps and photographs.

John Plunkett has written an historical detective story that casts new light on the evacuation and voyage from Kieta and leaves the reader to decide from conflicting reports and documents, what the true story was.

A perfect gift for those interested in Australia's wartime history
