By late 1944, the worst of World War Two appears to be over. But the conflict in the Pacific is about to hot up and it will be a long road to Tokyo for the Allies... Combining interviews and vivid archival footage, this is an eyewitness account of an often forgotten episode in history, providing a social context as well as a military overview of the titanic struggle to defeat Japan. For Australia, it is signposted with some of the bloodiest campaigns and most appalling events of the war – and the memory of 8031 POWs who would never come home.
