Where Soldier Lie, The Quest to Find Australia's Missing War Dead - Ian McPhedran

Where Soldiers Lie follows investigators and scientists on their mission to locate and identify unrecovered war casualties and to unlock their secrets.

From the jungles of Vietnam, where one man led a decade-long battle to recover and bring home the final six, to Korea, Papua New Guinea and the fields of the Somme, Flanders and Fromelles, it is a deeply human story of perseverance, luck and resolution.

For the first time, Where Soldiers Lie tells the moving story of the determination and skill of the searchers who apply old-fashioned detective work and cutting-edge science to solve the mysteries of the missing and bring peace of mind and solace to their families and to all those who serve.
