    One thought on “To The Bitter End: The Japanese Defeat at Buna and Gona 1942-43”

    1. Absolutely brilliant! Covers a very important gap in Australian military history and puts the importance of the beach head battles into context. They were amongst the bloodiest fought during WW2 and Lex MacAulay's writing really goes along way towards understanding the grittiness and horror of these battles.
