Following the Allied victory at Coral Sea, General Douglas MacArthur led Australian and US troops on a lengthy campaign to expel Japanese forces from northeastern New Guinea. To the west, the British were driven out of Burma and back to the Indian frontier. Over the next three years, they fought a brutal battle to retake the country.
In China, World War II became a continuation of the Second Sino-Japanese War which had begun in 1937. Supplied by the Allies, Chiang Kai-Shek fought the Japanese while warily cooperating with Mao Zedong's Chinese Communists.
In early 1942, Japanese troops began landing on the north coast of New Guinea. Their objective was to secure the island and its capital, Port Moresby, in order to consolidate their position in the South Pacific and provide a base for attacking the Allies in Australia.
