I hear ya on YouTube, Macclan5. I've been watching a documentary on Milne Bay for the past half hour. I started because I was hoping I'd hear them pronounce Gili Gili and Milne Bay (which, oddly, sounds like "Millun Bay" when they say it). I ended up watching the whole thing just because it was interesting to see footage of that part of Papua New Guinea. There was a little section on Milne Bay's place in WW2 history, too. The first place the Japanese lost a ground battle, it said. Is that true? I thought that would've been Guadalcanal.
When the Japanese were thwarted from invading Pt. Moresby after the Coral Sea battle, they landed some of the troops at Milne Bay but the stubborn Aussies held them. Not sure if they withdrew by sea or hiked to Buna via the jungle.
