      This is a very fine piece of work on a campaign that has long needed a fresh look. Taaffe's book is a well-written, meticulously researched operational level study of the New Guinea Campaign. As always, any study of this campaign must deal with the towering figure of Douglas MacArthur. Duffy’s book is a difficult read that while chronological, lacks narrative style and takes great effort to complete. It is useful information to be sure about a lesser known Pacific battle and one would hope the New Guinea campaign can get the epic story it and those who fought in it so richly deserve.

MacArthur’s Victory is, in essence, a continuation of Gailey’s earlier book, MacArthur Strikes Back—Decision at Buna: New Guinea (Presidio Press, ). He spends very little time explaining how MacArthur’s forces reached the starting point for this section of the campaign and, in fact, at times assumes the reader is already.

CHAPTER IV CLEARING OF PAPUA. Plans and Preparations. General MacArthur's immediate problems were to secure and strengthen his forward bases in New Guinea and to begin a counteroffensive that would drive the Japanese from Papua.

Operations would have to be carried out over some of the most difficult terrain of any area in the world. Finally, while General MacArthur remains a towering figure in American historiography, the passage of fifty years has dimmed the contributions of the U.S.

The New Guinea campaign (January September ) was one of the longest campaigns of the Second World War.
