Program Abstract: Volume One; 1941-43 Attack and Counterattack December 7, 1941- the horrific Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor nearly destroys the U.S. Pacific Fleet. American morale reels, but within six months, it's the enemy's turn to suffer at the Battle of Midway, losing 4 aircraft carriers, one cruiser, and 322 planes. The U.S. went on the offensive, launching a deadly campaign of amphibious assults that began with the Solomon Islands. It was there, on one obscure island, the U.S. Forces would learn the grueling and bloody nature of war in the Pacific- Guadalcanal. U.S. forces begin rolling back Japan's early advances starting with Tarawa- only two miles long but capturing it took the four bloodiest days of the entire Pacific campaign. Meanwhile, on Asian mainland Gis, Marines and their allies flight desperately for every yard of the Burma Road.
