K.S. (Ken) McKenzie – Infantryman – “I find the style and content of We Band of Brothers greatly enjoyable. …It gives an excellent account of infantry soldiering particularly at rifle company level. This is not as easy as it sounds but here the effort has been highly successful. I very much like the emphasis placed on the art of man management and the author’s light-hearted humour. On the more serious side, he has added significantly to the understanding of the Pacific Islands Regiment, Papua New Guinea and their place in the wider scheme of things during an important period of history.
