During his time in Australia, Maxwell made a number of trips to the World War II battlefields of the South Pacific. His travels included Papua New Guinea (Kokoda Track, Buna), the Solomon Islands (Guadalcanal), Bougainville and Tarawa. While walking the various battlefields, he photographed the relics of war, the guns, tanks and aircraft rusting in the jungle glades and lagoons of the South Pacific. His latest book, Pacific War Ghosts, describes his experiences visiting those battlefields.
