Frequently referred to as the "second front" of World War II, the events that transpired in the Pacific between 1941 and 1945 found thousands of American soldiers taking to the skies and oceans to fight the Japanese. Japan assumed a quick and easy victory against the Americans, but grossly underestimated the power and strength of the United States Armed Forces - a fact proven by multiple Allied victories in such locales as Iwo Jima, Midway and Peleliu. This documentary set provides a sweeping chronicle of the entire Pacific campaign, touching on such events as Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Peleliu and Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. The material draws on resources including archival combat footage, recollections by various veterans, and much more.
