The Kokoda Track campaign represented the first time that the national security of Australia was directly threatened. The victory of the Australians was celebrated as the saving of their country by the public. While there were intelligence failures and unrealistically high expectations of the Australian forces during the campaign, it helped highlight what needed to improve for more efficient medical and logistical infrastructure.
