Product Description

This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on World War II – Pacific Theater - Battle of Eniwetok. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

Following the US victory at Tarawa in November 1943, Allied forces pressed forward with their "island-hopping" campaign by advancing against Japanese positions in Marshall Islands. Part of the "Eastern Mandates," the Marshall's had been a German possession and were given to Japan after World War I.

Though held as part of the outer ring of Japanese territory, planners in Tokyo decided after the loss of the Solomon’s and New Guinea that the chain was expendable. What forces were available were moved to the area to make the islands' capture as costly as possible.

The fighting for Eniwetok Atoll saw Allied forces sustain 348 killed and 866 wounded while the Japanese garrison incurred losses of 3,380 killed and 105 captured. With key objectives in the Marshall's secured, Nimitz's forces briefly shifted south to aid General Douglas MacArthur's campaign in New Guinea.

This done, plans moved forward for continuing the campaign in the Central Pacific with landings in the Marianas. Advancing in June, Allied forces won victories at Saipan, Guam, and Tinian as well as a decisive naval triumph at the Philippine Sea.
