  • The Battle of Enogai was a battle between United States and Imperial Japanese Army and Navy forces on 10–11 July 1943 during the New Georgia Campaign in the Solomon Islands during the Pacific War. In the battle, U.S. Marine Raiders from the 1st Marine Raider Regiment, supported by two United States Army infantry battalions (the 3rd Battalion, 145th Infantry Regiment and the 3rd Battalion, 148th Infantry Regiment), under the command of Colonel Harry B. Liversedge, attacked and destroyed a Japanese garrison, mainly drawn from Colonel 's Kure 6th Special Naval Landing Force, guarding the small port of Enogai on the Dragons Peninsula on New Georgia. Prior to the fighting around Enogai, the attacking US troops had landed at the Rice Anchorage in the Kula Gulf area on 5 July, having sailed from Guadalcanal the previous day. The landing was undertaken as part of wider Allied operations to secure the New Georgia group of islands, as well as the Japanese airfield on the western coast of New Georgia island around Munda Point. In this regard, the landing at Rice Anchorage was undertaken to support the landing of US troops from the 169th and 172nd Infantry Regiments around Zanana, from where they would advance on Munda, while Liversedge's force cut Japanese lines of communication to prevent reinforcements being sent south towards Munda. After landing, the US troops moved inland. They found the going difficult and were only able to advance 5 miles (8.0 km) through the heavy jungle the first day. After three days, they had covered 7 miles (11 km). On 7–8 July, Liversedge occupied Triri. In response, the Japanese launched a counterattack with 400 troops on 8 July, which achieved some initial success before a flanking move by US troops turned it back. US forces then advanced to the mouth of the inlet, capturing Enogai on 10–11 July. US casualties amounted to 47 killed, 4 missing (presumed dead), and 74 wounded, while between 150 and 350 Japanese were estimated to have been killed. Following the capture of Enogai, Liversedge's force worked to improve the area's defenses, pressing several captured coastal guns into service, as well as other captured equipment including searchlights, machine guns, and mortars to secure the inlet. Elsewhere, to interdict Japanese reinforcements moving towards Munda, a roadblock had been established about 2 miles (3.2 km) inland along the Munda–Bairoko trail, which was held by US Army troops from 8 to 17 July. On 20 July, Liversedge then carried out an unsuccessful follow-up attack on nearby Bairoko, after which the American forces remained in the Enogai area until the end of the New Georgia Campaign, undertaking patrols and gathering intelligence regarding Japanese reinforcements moving towards the Munda area.
