John Stephenson

November 1942. From battlefront New Guinea, war correspondent Pat Kinnane lands in Brisbane, General MacArthur’s Headquarters, and finds himself in another kind of war. Amid serious Allied tension, with his guide Kay Dalberg, a smart, political young woman, over nine days he liases with operational US military, befriends a desperate Kokoda veteran, edges into a complicated love triangle and is witness to the mysterious death of a soldier. The crucial personal issues of his visit reach their climax on the sultry evening of the 26th, American Thanksgiving Day, when the city’s discords boil over into the fatal street riot known to history as The Battle of Brisbane.
