Japanese Advance/ Australian Withdrawal
21 July 1942, the first of 14,430 troops of the Japanese South Seas Detachment from Rabaul came ashore at Buna.
They planned to march across the Owen Stanley Range, across the Kokoda track. Once the invaders had secured Moresby, Australia would be at their mercy.
The 39th Australian Militia Battalion was rushed up that track from the Moresby end with orders to stop the invaders and to hold the only decent airstrip along the track, at the village of Kokoda, about halfway between Moresby and Buna.
The Kokoda Track, would be the scene for some of most ferocious hand-to-hand fighting of the Pacific War. The Diggers of Kokoda would write themselves into history by initially stalling and later defeating the Japanese march on Moresby, against all the odds.
