This short book comprises some of the experiences and encounters that the people of New Ireland had during the time when World War Two came to Papua New Guinea. The men and women whose stories are included in the book took part in a study from March to May of 2017. They were interviewed by a small team comprising Dr Lalen Simeon of Pacific Adventist University in PNG and Dr Jonathan Ritchie and Ms Catherine Nolan of Deakin University in Australia. They were assisted by Mr Richard Talevu from New Ireland.
