10 December 1942

While the Australians mop up the last defenders at Gona, the fighting at Sanananda eases as both sides consolidate.

Although the Diggers have effectively captured the Jap positions at Gona, pockets of resistance fight to the death and try their best to take their attackers with them.

The fighting begins to heat up at Buna where the Japanese defenders are still being resupplied by destroyer and submarine from Rabaul. As with their comrades at Gona and Sanananda, they are prepared to fight to the end.
