Having been turned back at the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942, the Japanese began seeking an alternative approach to capturing Port Moresby, New Guinea. Aware that the enemy was still interested in taking the town, Allied planners began efforts to a construct a base at Milne Bay at the eastern tip of New Guinea in June.

As work progressed on three airfields at Milne Bay, the Japanese landed at Buna in late July. Operating from Buna on the north coast, they advanced south over the rough terrain of the Kokoda Track towards Port Moresby.

The Battle of Milne Bay marked the first time during the war that the Japanese had been decisively defeated on land and forced to abandon a campaign. The victory provided a needed morale boost for Australian troops fighting on the Kokoda Track to the west and to Allied forces in the Battle of Guadalcanal.
