Eight men went in . . . only one returned. The harrowing true story of the daring raid on the Japanese occupied island of Muschu in 1945, based on the diary of Sapper Mick Dennis.

During the night of 11 April 1945, eight Australian Z Special commandos landed on Japanese-held Muschu Island, off the coast of New Guinea. Their mission was to reconnoitre the island's defences and confirm the location of two concealed naval guns that commanded the approaches to Wewak Harbour.

But the secret mission went horribly wrong. Unknown to them, their presence had been discovered within hours of their landing. With no means of escape, the island became a killing ground.

Nine days later, on the New Guinea mainland, the only survivor staggered back through the Japanese lines to safety…

This is the remarkable true story of that survivor.
