This military documentary focuses on World War II's Pacific campaign and the events that lead to critical conflicts, including Japan's attack against the United States at Pearl Harbor and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
Description by Allegro:
The war in the Pacific was primarily a naval war. It was marked by a series of amphibious operations that gradually rolled back Japanese forces in the Southern and Central Pacific until Allied forces were on the threshold of the Japanese home islands. It was punctuated by a series of epic naval battles, fought largely by carrier-based planes, between the US and Japanese navies.
Beginning with the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor, witness the battles of the Coral Sea and Midway. Each battle, respectively, marked the apex of Japanese expansion in the Southern and Central Pacific, followed by the naval battles in the Marianas and Leyte Gulf that finally broke Japan's naval power and laid open the road to Tokyo.
