The Aussies proved superior. Courageous but not suicidal. Tough and smart, not brutal and dumb. Better led. Much better fed. Enter armed and supported. After some hard-won lessons, the Aussies proved to be the best jungle fighters in the world. And they won!

Agree with Legionarius – the Aussies were tough cookies who knew when and when not to take a risk, and pound for pound in the desert could beat just about anyone

I remember reading that the Aussie's would use 25pdrs direct fire to counter snipe Japanese troops in coconut grove tree tops. That'll keep casualties down, but you're gonna need a ton of new trees.
