On July 21, 1942, Japanese forces landed on the northern Papuan coast around Buna and Gona, as part of a plan to capture the strategically important town of Port Moresby via an overland advance along the Kokoda Track.
The Japanese offensive in early 1938 was designed to link their northern force from Beijing with their central force from Nanjing. The two forces were to meet west of Xuzhou, thus severing the Lunghai corridor and the railroad which ran from the coast to Xian.
In March 1944 the Imperial Japanese Army invaded India from neighboring Burma.
