Summary
Colonel Ian Hutchison was a revered soldier and a great figure in Australian military history. As Commanding Officer of the 2/3 Australian Infantry Battalion in the Battle of Eora Creek on the Kokoda Trail, he was thrust unexpectedly into command yet inspired his men to a smashing victory which was the turning point in the Kokoda Campaign. He continued to lead in further victories at Oivi, Soputa and Sanananda. Writer and historian, S.P. Ramage writes of the Battle of Eora Creek Ridge (the Lost Battlefield) and why the magnitude of the victory has been covered up. This book examines Hutchison's career from the time he joined the Militia at the age of 16 in 1929, through his command in both the Second World War and the Korean War, until his retirement in 1963. This unique biography provides a compelling portrait of Colonel Ian Hutchison and a definitive study of battalion command in war and peace. It is of particular interest to those seeking information on the Kokoda Campaign of 1942, the Battles of Bardia and Tobruk, the Syrian Campaign, the Aitape Wewak Campaign, the War Crime Trials in New Guinea, and the static phase of the Korean War
