WWII Pacific Theatre of OperationsThread

I don't currently have any questions, but it seemed to me that there are a large number of European Theatre/Third Reich threads, perhaps we also need one devoted to the "other" part of the war. In my mind the PTO includes pretty much any area where the Japanese were THE Axis power in the conflict. This would include China-Burma-India as well as Naval Operations against the Japanese in the Indiam Ocean.

Just for kicks we could also include the small squadrons of submarines which both Germany and Italy commited to the Far East (as opposed to German Cruiser U-Boat raids against British Shipping in the Indian Ocean) Oh hell, I'm kind of a Naval History guy myself, so if you really wanna talk about those operations here, we can do that, too!

If anybody wants to get a Naval thread going as well I'm interested. WWII os my main area of interest, but WWI and earlier conflicts can also be discussed.

Just to add a little specific content to this post? On this day in 1943 (Jan 7th) US MArine and Army strength on Guadalcanal reaches 50,000. They are opposed by 25,000 Japanese. Strategic encirclement has commenced (via Sealift). In Burma a Stalemate has begun near Arakan.

Take it away folks!
