The Special Naval Landing Force troops were some of the best of all Japan's fighting men. Deployed in amphibious landings, their well planned and fanatical attacks won them many victories. If however they encountered a determined defence their light equipment often meant defeat. After one such defeat by an Australian force at Milne Bay, New Guinea, they would often be reduced to Garrison duty, where many were to fall resisting the US Marines.
