The U.S. and its allies were attempting to capture an airfield constructed by the Japanese at Munda Point on New Georgia.The Americans landed on New Georgia on 2 July 1943 and made limited gains in their drive toward Munda Point. The objective of the Japanese counterattack was to destroy the American forces on New Georgia by attacking their exposed flank and rear areas. The Japanese succeeded in infiltrating and attacking several isolated outposts in the American rear areas, but failed to inflict significant casualties on the American forces. After the Japanese counterattack was defeated, the Americans and their allies captured the airfield in the Battle of Munda Point. (en)
