The strategic significance of the Papuan Campaign can be briefly stated. In addition to blunting the Japanese thrust toward Australia and the transpacific line of communications, it put General MacArthur’s forces in a favorable position to take the offensive. But this little known campaign is significant for still another reason. It was the battle test of a large hitherto-inexperienced U.S. Army force and its commanders under the conditions which were to attend much of the ground fighting in the Pacific. Costly in casualties and suffering, it taught lessons that the Army had to learn if it was to cope with the Japanese under conditions of tropical warfare.
In a world brainwashed by blind beliefs and preached promise, fraught with disposable marriages and liberal debt dridge spares no one as he chimes. Employing his distinct style of short to the point poems, with dridge satire and wit he challenges the status quowhile pushing aside the present day veils of political and social correctness.
