This movie's closing epilogue states: "The massively outnumbered Australians were eventually forced to withdraw from Isurava and fight a series of desperate rearguard actions back along the track. After three more weeks of bloodshed, the Japanese, stretched to breaking point, were forced to retreat even though they were now in sight of their goal, Port Moresby. For the first time in the Second World War the Japanese army had been stopped. Australia would not be invaded. Chiselled into the memorial at the village of Isurava are four words: - Courage - Endurance - Mateship - Sacrifice - ." See more
