New Guinea was an unwelcoming place far from home for the many Australian and Japanese involved in its air, land and sea comapigns. Participants from both sides faced an enemy they did not understand, in battles that often exceeded limits of physical and psychological endurance. The AJRP presents this book in the hope that the experiences of those who fought, suffered, died and grieved as a result of the war can be faithfully passed on to a generation of English and Japanese readers now distant in time from these hostile shores.
