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.

Why was Germany an enemy of the US in World War 2?

Germany did NOT want to go to war with the US. But Germany DID want to go to war with the Soviet Union (RUSSIA), and did. The best way to defeat an enemy is to have him fighting on two sides (two fronts). Germany was already fighting Russia (Soviet Union) on the western side (western front), and needed to have Russia (Soviet Union) fighting on an Eastern side (eastern front). Japan had a reputation for fighting Russia, once in 1904-1905 (Russo-Japanese War-Japan won), and again in 1939 at NOMANHAN (Japan lost) located near Siberia. With that kind of record, Germany felt Japan might help Germany fight the Russians (again)...if Germany helped out Japan fight the United States, then Japan might return the favor. Three days after Pearl Harbor, on 11 December 1941, Germany declared on the United States. What Germany didn't know, was Japan was real tired of fighting Russia!
