 About the Book 

Walking Wounded is a tribute to the courage of our soldiers and their families, and a vivid demonstration of the power of one mans dream to heal the deepest wounds. Brian Freeman, former special forces officer, Kokoda Track record-breaker andMoreWalking Wounded is a tribute to the courage of our soldiers and their families, and a vivid demonstration of the power of one mans dream to heal the deepest wounds. Brian Freeman, former special forces officer, Kokoda Track record-breaker and discoverer of the lost battlefield of Kokoda, had a belief that walking the track could have a special benefit for wounded Australian servicemen and the families of those killed in Afghanistan. Over the last three years, he has turned this idea into a reality by organising three treks that have produced extraordinary results for the more than 100 diggers and family members of the fallen whove taken part so far - from the former commando who lost both legs in Afghanistan to the father who lost his son there. Walking Wounded is the story of these remarkable treks and of the compelling personal journeys of those who participated. It gives deep insight into their service, the actions that saw them wounded, the impact it had on their loved ones and the slow and painful process of recovery and rehabilitation that rarely features in our news stories.
