Kokoda Commander is the story of a remarkable man. ?Tubby? Allen led his troops in battle against three different enemies in the Middle East in six months in 1941, and won two great battles in Libya. In New Guinea in October 1942, he led the successful fight back along the Kokoda Trail. ?Tubby? Allen was an outstanding commander, but jealous rivals destroyed his career. This book restores the reputation of a fine commander unjustly vilified by examining Allen?s life and military career in full.
