GUAM (1944)

Guam was more important in the American eye than the neighbouring islands Saipan and Tinian in the Marianas. Guam was American territory before the war and a reconquest was important both for political and military reasons.

 

Coral Sea, May 1st - May 15th 1942
In the early May Imperial Japanese Navy forces sailed from Truk and Rabaul heading for Tulagi and Port Moresby respectively.
The Imperial Japanese Navy Command did not expect to find any US forces in the area as they believed all the US carriers to be damaged or occupied elsewhere.
The US had broken the Japanese Naval Codes and had despatched the carriers Lexington and Yorktown to the Coral Sea in late April with orders to turn back the invasion.
Failure by the US forces will mean the fall of New Guinea followed by the invasion of Australia.
 
 
IWO JIMA (1945)
The goal of Operation Detachment was to capture the two working airfields and an additional under construction to provide a staging area for attacks on the Japanese main islands. This battle comprised some of the fiercest and bloodiest fighting in the Pacific. After the heavy losses incurred in the battle, the strategic value of the island became controversial as it was useless both to the US Army as a staging base and the US Navy as a fleet base.
