Summary
"I dedicate this book to all the Australians and Americans who served in Milne Bay in August and September 1942. Most suffered this hell hole to be left with physical and mental damage for the rest of their shortened life. Those captured were all killed, usually by slow horrific torture. The army lived with the constant threats of combat death, disease - or worse - capture alive. For the Australian Air Force, this was their finest hour. For the Navy, HMAS Arunta and supply ships ran the constant risk of attack from I class Japanese submarines or Japanese Cruiser attack, but did so to serve the Asutralians in the Milne Bay. The enormous courage and determination of the Australian soldiers and American Engineers in Milne Bay has largely gone unrecognized. This book hopes to right this wrong. The Japanese also suffered greatly; their nation was diminished by the memories, horors and events of the Milne Bay campaign."
