Product Description

This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on World War II – Pacific Theater - Battle of Santa Cruz. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

With the Battle of Guadalcanal raging, Allied and Japanese naval forces clashed repeatedly in the waters around the Solomon Islands. While many of these involved surface forces in the narrow waters around Guadalcanal, others saw the adversaries' carrier forces clash in attempts to alter the strategic balance of the campaign.

Following the Battle of the Eastern Solomon’s in August 1942, the US Navy was left with 3 carriers in the area. This was quickly reduced to one, USS Hornet, after USS Saratoga was badly damaged by a torpedo and withdrawn and USS Wasp was sunk by I-19.

The Battle of Santa Cruz cost the Allies a carrier, destroyer, 81 aircraft, and 266 killed, as well as damage to Enterprise. Japanese losses totaled 99 aircraft and between 400 and 500 killed. In addition, heavy damage was sustained to Shokaku which removed it from operations for 9 months.

Though a Japanese victory on the surface, the fighting at Santa Cruz saw them sustain heavy aircrew losses which exceeded those taken at Coral Sea and Midway. These necessitated withdrawing Zuikaku and the uncommitted Hiyo to Japan to train new air groups. As a result, the Japanese carriers played no further offensive role in the Solomon Islands Campaign. In this light, the battle may be a strategic victory for the Allies.

The presentation covers the following:
