EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

An epic yet nearly forgotten battle of World War II—General Douglas MacArthur’s four-year assault on the Pacific War’s most hostile battleground: the mountainous, jungle-cloaked island of New Guinea.

One American soldier called it “a green hell on earth.” Monsoon-soaked wilderness, debilitating heat, impassable mountains, torrential rivers, and disease-infested swamps—New Guinea was a battleground far more deadly than the most fanatical of enemy troops. Japanese forces began landing in January 1942, determined to seize the island. Allied commander in chief General Douglas MacArthur committed three hundred forty thousand Americans, as well as tens of thousands of Australian, Dutch, and New Guinea troops, to retake New Guinea at all costs.

What followed was a four-year campaign involving some of the most horrific warfare in history. American victory in New Guinea, the first step toward the destruction of Hirohito’s empire, was of critical importance to MacArthur. His avowed “I shall return” to the Philippines could only be accomplished after taking the island.
