The Third Force

ANGAU's New Guinea War, 1942-46

Book - 2003
Rate this:
The Australian New Guinea Administrative Unit (ANGAU), an Australian Army unit, superseded the civilian government of Papua New Guinea early in 1942 and administered the area until mid-1946. This book traces all major aspects of ANGAU's war. It provides the only full-length study of Papua New Guinean interaction with Australian and American armed forces in the Second World War, filling a considerable gap in the study of Australia's colonial administration and in New Guinea's political and military history.
