Product Description
This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Pacific Theater - Battle of Empress Augusta Bay. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

In August 1942, having checked Japanese advances at the Battles of the Coral Sea and Midway, Allied forces moved to the offensive and initiated the Battle of Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. Engaged in a protracted struggle for the island, numerous naval actions, such as Savo Island, Eastern Solomon's, Santa Cruz, Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, and Tassafaronga were fought as each side sought the upper hand.

Finally achieving victory in February 1943, Allied forces began moving up the Solomon's towards the large Japanese base at Rabaul. Rabaul was the focus of a larger Allied strategy, dubbed Operation Cartwheel, which was designed to isolate and eliminate the threat posed by the base.

The victory at Empress Augusta Bay secured the landing beaches while a large-scale raid on Rabaul on November 5th, which included the air groups from USS Saratoga , and USS Princeton, greatly reduced the threat posed by Japanese naval forces. Later in the month, the focus shifted northeast to the Gilbert Islands where American forces landed at Tarawa and Makin.

The presentation covers the following:

Operation Cartwheel
Japanese Set Sail
American Fleet
Fighting Begins
Americans Attack
Battle in the Dark
Japanese Score Hits
Breaking Off
End of Presentation

This is one of many power point presentations I offer in my store under the heading.... World War II.
