Australia Versus Germany – The Story of the taking of German New Guinea

Australia Versus Germany - The Story of the taking of German New Guinea
Australia Versus Germany - The Story of the taking of German New Guinea
An account of the first military campaign undertaken single-handedly by the new Australian Nation. This book provides a detailed account of the opening campaign of the First World War undertaken by Australian Army and Navy forces. Following the outbreak of World War I, Australian troops captured Kaiser-Wilhelmsland and the nearby islands in 1914, after a short resistance led by Captain Carl von Klewitz and Lt. Robert "Lord Bob" von Blumenthal. The only significant battle occurred on 11 September 1914 when the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force attacked the low-power wireless station at Bitapaka (near Rabaul) on the island of New Britain, then Neu Pommern. The Australians suffered six dead and four wounded — the first Australian military casualties of the First World War. The German forces fared much worse, with one German officer and 30 native police killed and one German officer and ten native police wounded. On 21 September all German forces in the colony surrendered. Includes numerous photographs and details of this little known campaign. Download in PDF ebook format (80MB).
