The Kokoda Campaign was a World War II militant initiative, consisting of a series of sequential battles fought between the Japanese and predominantly Australian Allied forces. Kokoda itself, was a small village and airfield at the foothills of the Owen Stanley Mountain Range though, the Kokoda Trail was the setting at which these conflicts transpired. The mountainous road rose over 3000 meters, extending 200 kilometers across Australian territory New Guinea, from Gona in the north, to the administrative centre of Port Moresby in the south. The official commencement of the Kokoda Campaign was on the 21 July 1942, when the Japanese forces landed on the coast near Gona.
The extent in which the film Kokoda (2006) accurately represents aspects of the Kokoda campaign is moderate. The Kokoda campaign lasted four months and consisted of battles fought between Japanese and Australian forces. The battles began when Japanese forces arrived at the north coast of Papua New Guinea in July 1942. Their strategy was to advance through a track over the Owen Stanley Range and occupy Port Moresby, in order to use it as a base for launch operations and threaten Australia. As a defence, Australia sent the newly formed 39th Battalion to cross the Kokoda Track and defeat the Japanese.

Our brave troops capture Kokoda, yet again! Throughout this dreadful war, the Japanese have been brutal, killing machines who have slaughtered or seized anyone who is in the way of their path to success with no questions or second guessing. It is completely unbelievable how horrendous these people can be. Our hard working, brave soldiers have fought endlessly to protect not only us and our country, but also the land and people of New Guinea.
