The Pacific War's unique nature of island hopping has been matched before or since. In order for the United States to defeat Japan, it would take massive logistical capability to conquer many of the Japanese held islands across the Pacific Ocean all the way to the mainland. Each island battle brought the American soldier up against the Japanese soldier, who sought death on the battlefield rather than surrender. Between 1942-1945, America showed its naval dominance as it spearheaded over one-hundred landings in the Pacific. Learn here what it took to win the war in the Pacific.
