No specific stratergy, just halt the Japanese advance, weaken their navy and push into Japanese land and get within bombing distance of Tokyo.
The Japanese were able to further their military gains in the pacific due to the speed of their advance and the collapse of organised resistance to the Japanese Army and Navy .
Admiral Yamamoto was the head of the Imperial Navy. He was responsible for much of the strategy that was used in the war. He died when his plane was shot down in the South Pacific.
I believe part of the strategy was to use the US Navy and Marines in the Pacific Theater and to a lesser degree the US Navy and Merchant Marines, and the US Army in the European Theater. Most of the Pacific fighting was the so-called "island hopping" technique.
The United States Navy did use the defense strategy in the caribbean.
They were somewhat scared to fight the Continental Navy.
Yes. The Marine Corps and the US Navy were assigned to the Pacific campaign, while the Army and Navy were assigned to the European campaign.
Taking islands one by one in the direction of Japan itself and defeating the Japanese navy by superior aircraft carrier and fighter plane strategy.
Japanese naval strategy before the war was to wait for the US to attack with their battle fleet, the Japanese navy would attack the US Navy as they sailed across the Pacific, gradually whittling them down before they came within striking distance of Japan. The US knew this, so an attack at Pearl was not contemplated until it was too late.
Navy and men
They can be
Europe was an "Army" show; the Pacific was a "Navy" show. Each one wanted their piece of the pie. The Navy wanted to implement "Plan Orange", the Army wanted to play a "big" role; and obviously couldn't in a "naval war." Therefore, the saving of England & Europe FIRST became the deciding factor. Army wins!
i need to now what the navy made to communicate in the early 1900's
The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor because they believed that the United States was the greatest threat to their unchecked advance across the Pacific. Specifically because the U.S. cut off their oil reserves. This meant that the Japanese would be unable to make war for long. To allow for a greater advance into the oil-rich Pacific would be suicidal for the United States, who also heavily depended on oil for their navy(and army AND Air Corps). To this end the Japanese launched the surprise attack on Battleship Row to deal as much damage as physically possible to the American Pacific Navy and attempt to force the Americans to sue for peace. The only saving grace for the entire Pacific war effort was that the US carriers Hornet and Yorktown were out patrolling and were not hit by the wave of Imperial fighters over Pearl.
All countries involved fought in the pacific at one time, but it was mainly the U.S. Navy, the Royal Navy, The Kriegsmarine, the Japanese Navy and the air force of every country.
It is an approximately six month long deployment by a navy ship in the WESTern PACific.
Responsibility, honor, courage
