Causes Of The Kokoda Trail

Satisfactory Essays
The terrain of the Kokoda Trail influenced the fight in 1942 in many ways. The Kokoda Trail is a jungle area, restricting visibility and movement. Another way the terrain of the Kokoda Trail restricted visibility and movement was that it was mountainous. There were also many other natural obstacles, such as steep slopes, few tracks, thick jungle and treacherous streams, that hindered communication during the fighting. The mountains also served as a hiding place for the Japanese when they were retreating, as they hid in the Imita Range on the 28th of September 1942.
