The book reveals how many crash sites were also murder cases - as Japanese executed captured aircrews in most areas of the South West Pacific. Each chapter begins with the particular aircraft's WWII mission history which in itself are interesting, often tragic stories of hardship and survival.

At war's end in the Pacific, the fate of a thousand missing Australian airmen hung in the balance.

In the jungle, crocodiles and snakes were not their only enemies - isolated pockets of armed Japanese soldiers remained at large. Many of the stories are told here for the first time- heroic stories of those few who walked out of the wilderness; and tragic tales of those who never made it. Still others stayed with their wrecked aircraft and slowly perished.

The Empire is theoretically under the control of a central monarchy. However, the rate of expansion means that the society cannot be ruled that way effectively. In fact, the systems of the colonial diaspora are colonized by designated corporations that work hand-in-hand with the Ministry of Investment and Development. The Ministry of Security is involved as well, due to the need for native and/or alien pacification, security forces, defense, and surveillance.

At the end of WWII, the fate of a thousand missing Australian airmen hung in the balance. In their quest to bring home stories and sometimes remains of downed aircrew, searchers covered countless miles by air, sea, and foot through trackless country and isolated pockets of armed Japanese soldiers. They discovered heroes who walked out of the wilderness, and found evidence of those who perished in crashes, by starvation, or at the hands of Japanese soldiers. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c.
