7 Pearl Harbor Attacked - Dec. 7, 1941 A date which will live in infamy! Japan wanted the natural resources like tin, iron and gasoline that the Americans had stopped selling them when the USA found out about what was happening in China. Japan saw American neutrality as a sign of weakness. They believed America would give up right away if attacked brutally enough.

8 Pearl Harbor from the Cockpit of a Japanese Pilot


10 USS Arizona, Pearl Harbor The only American ships to survive the attack untouched were lost in the Pacific Ocean trying to find Hawaii. Japan had reason to think the Americans could be intimidated into staying out of the War. Americans were not known for their great military prowess. Most people thought they chose not to fight because they werent any good at it.

11 President Roosevelt Signs the US Declaration of War Why were the Japanese so surprised that the USA declared war on them?

12 Japan had already captured large sections of China and South Asia before WWII started but Japan needed the resources of the Dutch East Indies and geographic access of the American controlled Philippines. Japans strategy called for simultaneous attacks on Malaya, Thailand, American- held Guam and Wake, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines, and Hawaii. When the USA joined WWII, the areas in red were under the control of American enemies, the Axis Powers. Americans werent very ready for such a massive undertaking.

19 Why are the Japanese so determined to control all of South Asia? Take a look at your Axis Aggression map to see how fast Japan gobbled up land in South Asia.

20 Japans Offensive Pays Off While the USA mobilizes for war and Britain is pinned down at home Singapore Surrenders [February, 1942]

21 Why would Singapore be a valuable location to control?

22 Little Known Fact: General MacArthur, famed WWII war hero snuck out of the besieged fox hole the Americans and their allies had retreated to, and abandoned his men, giving the following order to his starving troops: "I am utterly opposed under any circumstances or conditions to the ultimate capitulation of this command (i.e. the Philippines). If food fails, you will prepare and execute an attack upon the enemy". Unprepared for the overwhelming Japanese attack, the U.S. Surrenders at Corregidor, the Philippines [March, 1942]

23 Bataan Death March : April, 1942 76,000 prisoners marched 60 miles in the blazing heat to POW camps in the Philippines. Only 54,000 reached the camp. The rest were beaten to death, shot or died of dehydration. More Japanese Atrocities… Japanese believed it was shameful to surrender when you could die fighting. They punished those they captured quite cruelly.


25 The Burma Campaign The Burma Road Not ideal for Tanks. General Stilwell Leaving Burma, 1942 Brutal jungle fighting under constant aerial combat.



28 Japanese Kamikaze Planes: The Scourge of the South Pacific Kamikaze Pilots Suicide Bombers Death before dishonor. Death before surrender. Death before defeat. What is the connection between the Kamikaze pilots, Japans views on surrender and Japans access to resources? Japanese Moto:

29 Allied Counter-Offensive:Island-Hopping Take only the lightly defended islands and skip the rest. Japan still has to spend soldiers and supplies on the others. Test Question Alert!

30 Turning Point in the Pacific The Battle of Midway was fought over and near the tiny U.S. mid-Pacific base at Midway atoll (island). (June 1942) Prior to this action, Japan had more ships than the United States and could usually choose where and when to attack. After Midway, the two opposing fleets were essentially equals, and the United States soon took the offensive. With the battle of Midway, the US stops the Japanese expansion. From here the Japanese lose territory until the end of the war. Battle of Midway Island: Battle of Midway Island: June 4-6, 1942

31 What strategic advantage is there to stopping the Japanese at Midway?

32 Battle of Guadalcanal August 7, 1942, and February 7, 1943 Stopped the Japanese from getting the resources of Australia

33 Gen. MacArthur Returns to the Philippines! [1944]


35 US Marines on Mt. Surbachi, Iwo Jima [Feb. 19, 1945] Iwo Jima is striking distance from Japan. Americans can easily fly bombing missions to Japans civilian centers from here. What advantage would attacking Japanese civilians give the Americans? Think strategically and emotionally.
