This dramatic analysis of General MacArthur's duel with the Japanese for possession of New Guinea is a vivid and incisive study of a key World War II campaign. The Japanese had quickly established themselves on the northeastern coast of New Guinea, around Buna, and had launched a number of offensives against Australian and green American troops in the area. Possession of New Guinea and the Coral Sea threatened Australia and the entire balance of military power in the area. Allied success in New Guinea would not only prevent this but also boost flagging morale. MacArthur was assigned the task of defeating the Japanese at Buna and the fighting which followed was heavy, prolonged and stubborn. Buna itself was a major strongpoint, surrounded by dense and hostile jungle, and the campaign proved a severe test for the American military and an unprecedented risk for Allied strategic planners.
