In our continued effort here at HiTech Creations to honor the brave military who fought in World War II, we will again take a look at one of the battles fought during that war. Today we will take a quick peek at a battle few have heard of, namely the Battle of Lone Tree Hill.

Otherwise known as the Battle of Wakde-Sarmi, this battle was fought between the United States and the Empire of Japan in the Western New Guinea Campaign. Japan, having earlier lost Hollandia, was frantically digging in and holding onto the Toem-Wakde-Sarmi area of New Guinea in an attempt to keep the United States from using the area as a staging area for future battles. Japanese soldiers from the 223rd and 224th Infantry Regiments were dug in nicely in a fortified position on Lone Tree Hill overlooking Maffin Bay and it was the job of the United States 158th Regimental Combat Team to take the hill.

After heavy opposition and having been outflanked, the U.S. 158th gave way to the U.S. 6th Infantry Division and after ten days of fierce fighting the Hill was taken. When the fighting had ended Japan had lost 3.870 mean to fighting and another estimated 11,000 to disease and starvation. Strategically they lost a valuable piece of geography as the United States used this area for staging for six ensuing battles including Leyte and Luzon in the months ahead.

In April of 1944 the Japanese could not afford to lose any more men or land possessions and this loss was one of many in a slow march towards the end of the war for the Japanese. The Americans, by the way, lost about 1,000 men during this battle.
