As part of our ongoing series of historical video-maps, we present: ‘Everyday of World War II in the Pacific,’ from Youtube creator EmperorTigerstar. Following our previous post, which showed the changing front lines of World War II in the European theater, this map shows the changing front lines of the Pacific theater of World War II.
Although Japanese territorial expansion continued until their defeat in the Aleutian Campaign in mid August 1943, they had already suffered critical defeats at Midway in June 1942 and Guadalcanal by February 1943, barely a year after the surprise attack at Pearl Harbor. The Japanese Empire surrendered on August 15th after nuclear bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
