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 who’ve taken part so far – from the former commando who lost both legs in Afghanistan to the father who lost his son there.
Today Walking Wounded, written with Tony Park and published by Pan Macmillan, goes on sale and is the story of these remarkable treks and of the compelling personal journeys of those who participated. You can view the full media release from Pan Macmillan here.
HMMG is excited about the release of Walking Wounded and work is being done on development across film, television and digital platforms in order to share his incredible work.
