Summary
Leave no man behind. What drives former soldiers to spend years searching for the remains of fallen warriors? From the WW1 battlefields of the Somme and Fromelles to the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Vietnam, this is the fascinating and moving story of the dogged hunt by two former diggers for the remains of Aussie soldiers listed as MIA in WWII and Vietnam. These extraordinary men - and a handful of others - will not rest until every Australian soldier who has died overseas serving their country is returned to Australian soil and their families. It is a story of incredible determination against difficult odds, of exacting forensic analysis and painstaking detective work, to uncover and identify the remains of Australian soldiers, in battlefield over the decades, and to bring their remains home
