The Torokina Perimeter was 11,000 yards long along Empress Augusta Bay and extended some 8,000 yards inland. With 3 months to prepare for the inevitable Japanese counterattack, the GIs of the 37th Infantry Division were quite ready when the IJA moved to the attack. General Magata’s 45th Infantry were tasked with breaking through the left-center of the defense.
