Often neglected in the media's commemoration calendar and little known beyond those directly affected, this web site commemorates the Second World War in the islands of New Guinea and the impact it has had on many lives.
The site aims to make information about the people and events in New Britain and New Ireland before, during and after Japanese occupation, readily available to a wide range of researchers in order to raise the profile of this area and theatre of war.
