Advance Across the Pacific

Lecture no. 21 from the course: World War II: A Military and Social History

 Advance Across the Pacific

Taught by Professor Thomas Childers | 27 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

The American strategy in the Pacific was a largely political compromise between the courses recommended by Douglas MacArthur and Chester Nimitz. The compromise allowed MacArthur to begin his long march back to the Philippines via the Solomons and New Guinea while Nimitz waged a bloody campaign of "island hopping" through the Gilbert, Marshall, and Mariana Islands.
