This WWII war book is a study of the Battles conducted by Australian American forces against Japanese in the Wau and adjacent coastal area of Salamaua. This is 6th Edition of the Australian Army Campaigns Series of books.
Throughout most of 1942, the Australian Army fought a series of Commando style actions to keep the Japanese under control in the Wau - Salamaua area of New Guinea. The Australian Commando operation against Japanese held positions at Salamaua in June 1942 is still considered to be "the perfect raid". Following other Commando actions at Mubo, the Japanese reinforced their troops at Salamaua in January 1943, and conducted a daring operation to capture Wau.
Advancing by way of a seemingly impassable track between the Australian outposts, a force of two infantry battalions reached the foothills overlooking Wau before coming up against a single Australian company of infantry. Courageously led by Captain Bill Sherlock this small force held the Japanese advance at bay for a vital 36 hours, allowing other Australian troops to be rushed in to defend Wau.
Based on a detailed analysis of the battlefield, this book outlines how the victory was achieved and demonstrates how determined leadership can turn the tide of battle.
Text is supported with graphic maps and many then and now pics of the battlefield
