Describing the enormous challenges posed by jungle and amphibious warfare, the author examines the campaign's strategic background and individual operations. By revealing the interaction among American military planning, interservice politics, MacArthur's generalship, and the American way of war, he provides a clearer understanding of America's Pacific war strategy and shows that the New Guinea offensive was not a mere backwater affair but a critical part of the war against Japan.
