World War II in the Pacific

By May 8, 1945, World War II in Europe had ended with Allied victory, but the Pacific theater was yet to see its deadliest days. An important theatre in World War II was the Pacific War (also known as Asia-Pacific War) from 1941 – 1945. Japan was seeking to create a great Empire in Asia, on December 8, 1941 Japanese forces attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbour (where it was still December, 7) as the United States were the only country with sufficient naval forces to oppose Japan in the Pacific. In response, the United States declared war on Japan. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Japan achieved a long series of military successes until the Japanese invasion fleet was defeated in the naval Battles. The Allies reached their turning point with the defeat of the Japanese at Guadalcanal in February 1943. Until the formal surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945, a great number of battles were fought both on sea and land. Both sides suffered heavy losses and casualties.
