This documentary examines the Pacific battles in World War II following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, as Marine forces fought in places like the Philippines and the Gilbert Islands.
Within 6 months of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, the tide of war in the Pacifi c theater had
already started to turn. In this program we look at the hard fought battles that stopped the Japanese thrust westward towards Hawaii and southwards towards Australia, as well as the key battles that shattered the Japanese lines of defense in the Pacific.
