Kokoda

Kokoda | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Kokoda: That Bloody Track is a factual graphic novel (or traditional comic) that tells the true story of the Kokoda battles in July and August 1942.... This campaign is placed within the wider context of the Second World War. Eyewitness accounts and original diaries are included to add a personal perspective.... The Japanese perspective is included through the use of soldiers' diaries. Where possible, Japanese and native languages (Motu and Pidjin) are included to provide a cultural balance. Translation boxes are included."

 

Useful for History, or might be considered for English as a text to address the requirements under the Aust Curriculum for texts with links to Asia.
