Battle of the Beachheads DVA


Description:
No other battle in Papua New Guinea challenged the Allies as completely and unexpectedly as the Battle of the Beachheads - Buna, Gona and Sanananda. Those that fought on this battlefield compared it to passing through the gates of hell. For two months, unit after unit fought against the lethal Japanese forces, and upon the Allied victory, 1300 Australian troops lay dead across the combined battlefronts.

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs 'Australians in the Pacific War' series follows the events of several Pacific War campaigns throughout 1940-1945, covering details with clear insight and imagery easily understandable for all audiences.

Soft cover, 53 pages.
