Army, Air, and Navy leaders- combined operations- political and diplomatic intrigue- the challenges of ground, air, and sea warfare within differing Pacific theaters- military science and technology- the essential role of intelligence- the proposed Allied invasion of the Japanese home islands- and the use of the atomic bombs.For the United States, World War II began and ended in the Pacific, from Japans aerial attack on Pearl Harbor, on December 7, 1941, to its surrender in Tokyo Bay, on September 2, 1945.

During those years, for all but five months, Americans and their Allies were compelled to hold the line in Asia, doggedly opposing the imperialist Japan while a Europe First policy against Nazi Germany and fascist Italy prevailed in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. The United States operated over huge distances, from China, Burma, and India, to countless Pacific islands from the Aleutians to the Coral Sea. It sent its Army, Navy, Marine, and Air forces into grueling and horrific battles against a Japan bent at all costs on expanding its empire across thousands of miles and exploiting human and natural resources wherever it conquered.The momentous Allied victory in World War II made the United States the superpower it has been for half a century and, in large measure, determined its military planning into the present day.

The War in the Pacific in particular proved that American military personnel fought bravely in many climes, on many fronts, against the odds, with amazing ingenuity and purpose. The discussions on World War II in general and the War in the Pacific in particular presented herein deal frankly with a time that tested Americas resolve as it was never tested before and has not been tested since.Grand Strategy in the Pacific War * Gerhard L.
