On Shaggy Ridge details the dramatic but little known story of the 1943-1944 Ramu Valley campaign in New Guinea which culminated in the battle for Shaggy Ridge. As if defending the ramparts of a medieval fortress the Japanese entrenched themselves along this razorback ridge and resisted the Australian advance for over four months.
