Gaudalcanal - US Campaign in WW2Gaudalcanal - US Campaign in WW2 - On 7 December 1941, Imperial Japanese forces turned their war on the Asian mainland eastward and southward into the Pacific with simultaneous attacks on Pearl Harbor, the Philippines, Wake, Guam, Hong Kong, and the Malay Peninsula. The rapid southward advance of Japanese armies and naval task forces in the following months found Western leaders poorly prepared for war in the Pacific. The decision to block this advance brought American forces into the Solomon Islands and U.S. Army troops onto the island of Guadalcanal. This booklet describes the campaign to stop the Japanese advance. Click below to order and download the pdf ebook (340kb).
