Product Description
This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Pacific Theater - Naval Battle of Casablanca. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

In 1942, having been convinced of the impracticality of launching an invasion of France as a 2nd front, American leaders agreed to conduct landings in northwest Africa with the goal of clearing the continent of Axis troops and opening the way for a future attack on southern Europe.

Intending to land in Morocco and Algeria, Allied planners were required to determine the mentality of the Vichy French forces defending the area. These totaled approximately 120,000 men, 500 aircraft, and several warships. It was hoped that as a former member of the Allies, the French would not engage British and American forces.

In the fighting at the Naval Battle of Casablanca, Hewitt lost 4 troopships and around 150 landing craft, as well as sustained damage to several ships in his fleet. French losses totaled a light cruiser, 4 destroyers, and 5 submarines. Several other vessels had been driven aground and required salvage. Though sunk, Jean Bart soon was raised where it remained at Casablanca until 1945. Having taken Casablanca, the city became a key Allied base for the remainder of the war and in January 1943 hosted the Casablanca Conference between President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill.
