    Michael, check your info If you had read much about the pacific from an unbiased source you would know that the aussies and kiwis were not useless!!! IT WAS AUSTRALIA WHO handed the Japanese their first land-based defeat. American troops were sent in towards the end of the battle of Kokoda and wouldn't fight and the Australians had to go in an replace more of them. The rest of the battles though, America lead the way. Edit: Yep, Michael, I realise that about the Battle of the Coral Sea - I'm not trying to diminish the efforts of the American forces - WW2 would have been lost in the Pacific and in Europe without them, I'm simply pointing out that Japan was defeated by the Australians in the land battle of Kokoda in PNG - that is all. I know how the Japanese code was broken etc. Yes, Australia would have been invaded without U.S. help - plans were actually made in anticipation regarding 'The Brisbane Line". Also, please don't pretend it was a noble campaign by the U.S. to save australia - they needed a base in the Pacific to launch military operations. Australia provided. In return, we got much-needed help. Today, yes, the alliance is far stronger, at the time though, it was the first time that Australia turned to a nation other than Britain for assistance. ALSO: Australia didn't hold them off 'for a little while'. They thoroughly exhausted Japanese supply lines - that doesn't happen after a few days

    The general program for both the European and Pacific Theaters was containment (to deny the expansion of the sphere of influence of Nazi Germany and Japan) and balancing great-power relations within the Allied fronts. In short, and not to take away from your studies, the rapid rise of Germany and Japan's militarism and the incapacity of the (then) European States were met with direct military intervention (or might); or, like Chris noted, opening the American can of wup*%#@.

    The agreement was to finish off the war in Europe and then concentrate all forces on defeating Japan

    One of the most important factors in keeping the U.S. strong and capable is to see to it that young Americans are well read in basic subjects, such as history. A useful device for encouraging students to read and understand history is to assign homework questions that require the student to read the history book. In this way, both the student and teacher follow a strategy that keeps America a winner.

    Europe: Get Germany out of France & the low countries.

    Pacific: Push Japan back to its main islands.

    Forced surrender of the Axis was the ultimate goal.
